The Totally Deductible Christmas
Next Christmas, max out your charitable giving by purchasing only gifts that are sold or made by non-profit organizations. For example, give flame roast coffee beans from FRUA (Families for Russian and Ukrainian Adoption), artwork from NIAD (National Institute of Art and Disabilities) or a knit scarf from your local house of worship. Your long-distance friends and family will appreciate something from your hometown. Those who live nearby will enjoy a more global reach. There are many, many different products available, but regardless of the gift, everyone who receives it will GET the IDEA... and love it. Just save all your receipts and turn them in at tax time for a Totally Deductible Christmas!
