Our Director of Programs was born on January 1st and her father always teased her that they missed an entire year of tax deductions. When my daughter was born, my uncle congratulated me on my “beautiful bundle of tax deductions.” Loving humor aside, I want to make sure I don’t miss out on any opportunities—including those from my charitable giving.
The holidays are winding down, and tax season is right around the corner. JustGive makes it easy to end 2010 on a positive note—with charitable donations that help someone in need and you.

The best way to make an ongoing difference is to make monthly donations to your favorite charities. I find it helps me manage my monthly budget and feel good when I see the posting each month.
Donate and check recurring to give affordably, as little as $10 per month, throughout the year. You can even give anonymously to avoid any unwanted mail or newsletters. Each month, we’ll automatically send your donations to the charities of your choice.
Need the perfect gift for your New Years Eve party host?
A GiveNow charity gift card lets them ring in the New Year by supporting their favorite cause. Instead of adding a stop at the store to my to-do list, I can print the card from home and tuck it in a festive card on my way out the door.
When the clock strikes midnight (if this new Mom can stay up that late!), I’ll know 2011 is a little brighter for myself, and many others.
