Give the gift of a Healthy Future

The Christmas season is fast approaching and we’re already starting with our shopping. This year we are going to ease up on the “guess gifts”. Those are the gift where we are guessing at what the person might like. Those are the gifts where we are not sure if they will be appreciated or regifted. So, instead of a fattening box of chocolates or some smelly soaps, we are going to give the gift that will last: a healthier environment.

We are going to give our friends, family, work colleagues and teachers a gift membership to the David Suzuki Foundation.  Not only is this a “unique and forward-thinking” gift, but we avoid the hustle and bustle of the shopping mall. The David Suzuki Foundation offers nature-themes holiday cards that you can order online and then mail or e-mail to your gift recipient.

The David Suzuki Foundation explains how it works:

Click here to choose your favourite holiday card to be sent to someone special. You’ll be guided through the steps of making a donation in honour of that person, writing a personal note to be included in the card, choosing how to send it, then voila! The card will be on its way, and your gift in honour of your loved one will make a huge difference for the environment.

Not only will your loved one receive a snazzy card, they will also receive a year-long membership to the David Suzuki Foundation, along with an information package about the work we do, and our newsletter, Finding Solutions. If you choose to save paper by sending the card by email, your friend or family member will also receive an eye-catching downloadable screensaver.

Your friends will love being a part of the solution, and you’ll be happy knowing that your important gift will go a long way to protecting nature.
