Procrastinator's Paradise: 11th Hour Emergency Holiday Shopping | Shopping & Services
So let's say you have lots of gifts to buy but no time to shop.
Rest easy and take a deep breath - you have just clicked on a story with the answer to your holiday shopping dilemma.
Here you will find links to some Mid-South charities where you can make a donation and automatically send an e-card to your gift recipients' e-mail addresses! How cool is that?
Let's start with MIFA, the Metropolitan Interfaith Association, a Memphis agency that delivers Meals-on-Wheels to elderly shut-ins and does all kinds of great things in our community. Make a minimum gift of $10 per card, and you can send a MIFA Christmas card, Hanukkah Card or Holiday Card instantly through the world wide web! Click here to the card section at MIFA.
Many Memphians regard St. Jude Children's Research Hospital as the crown jewel of our community. You can send a tribute card via St. Jude's helpful website here.
You can select from 250 national and local charities that send e-cards to your gift recipients' e-mail address at this website.
The World Wildlife Fund has some attractive cards featuring some of the stars of nature here.
A website called "Cards That Give" delivers your kindness to your choice of charities and an e-card to your recipient, click here to see it.
A website in Australia called Charitable E-Cards offers some creative choices that allows you to personalize your e-card with your own logo. Just click here to see it, on but be aware that your charitable gift is heading "Down Under."
Finally, let's say you have no money, no time to shop, but want to share your warm holiday feelings with those on your e-mail list.
Relax, my cash strapped friend.
You can go to American Greetings website and send that holiday love for free here.
Tell those on your gift list this year not to look under the tree, but in their in-box to see how their name is being honored while the missions of many charities are being furthered!
