Giving Good

There are many opportunities to support local and international groups this holiday season. Some help out local organizations and some help people around the world. The La Crosse Tribune had a nice spread on Sunday about Nine gifts that give back. Included in their list is Heifer International, a wonderful organization that really does "spread the wealth around."

Locally, don't miss the Fair Trade Market on Monday and Tuesday, Dec. 1 and 2 in the Ward Room, Cartwright Center, UW-L.

Also, consider a gift to your local peace and justice group, women's shelter (New Horizons lost $35K in county funding and they need your help!) or educational institution.
