Daily Worth: Give Like a Celebrity

Another great email from Daily Worth that I just had to share with you guys! I think giving and donating is hugely important, even more so over the holidays and this post is full of all sorts of options!


Happy giving!!

It's that year-end tug-of-war: With so many priorities putting pressure on your cashflow—gifts! parties!
resisting the temptation to buy stuff for yourself!—how do you set aside money for causes you care about?

We have two answers for you:

Make It Fun. Crowdrise, the brainchild of Hollywood producer Shauna Robertson ("Super Bad") and her partner Ed Norton, is like

a philanthropic Facebook designed to help you get a charitable life.

Join Will Ferrell and others: Set up your own giving page, pick your charities—or
find your friends and join their causes—and use social networking to raise cash. (All the charities are 501(c)3 organizations; donations are processed through Network for Good.)

We like Millennium Promise and Invisible Children.

Think Small. There are more children living in poverty now, owing to the recession, new research shows—and the Tory

Burch Foundation aims to be part of the solution by providing microloans to working moms in the United States who want to start their own businesses.

You can donate directly or purchase one of Tory Burch's signature items; all profits benefit the foundation. And check out some of
the entrepreneurs TBF has helped (like Cousin & Co., a handbag company in Brooklyn).
