  1. My top charities that I donate to are Smile Train, Chicago Tribune Charities, and DuPage NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness). I also drop coins in the Salvation Army kettles.

  2. I plan on donating to the Northern Illinois Food Bank, the Salvation Army and the Chicago Tribune Charities.

  3. I help out at the PADS homeless shelter and participate in the Thanksgiving day Turkey Trot which gives money to charities.

  4. Angel Tree and Intervarsity.

  5. Along with my boyfriend we plan donate to the Fabretto Children’s Foundation, which supports Nicaraguan children…his home country. Perhaps we should send some yummy Chicago Mix for them to enjoy as well!!

  6. Tickets! Popcorn! Wilco!

  7. My ten-year-old son, a group of ten students (part of an school volunteerism team supported by BuildON – I’m a CPS high school teacher) and I volunteered at a homeless.  shelter, serving a Thanksgiving dinner and handing out cold weather gear. The group I lead at my school is a nonprofit called BuildON – we work to share the spirit of volunteerism with urban teens while also examining community and global issues.

  8. I give to various organizations year-round, but this holiday season I’ll be giving to my alma mater UW-Madison’s scholarship fund. Giving the gift of education always makes me feel great!

  9. I am donating my time to helping Iraqi refugees in the Chicago area through tutoring students and volunteering with local organizations.

  10. I always donate my old clothes to Goodwill, I plan on donating to The Salvation Army, Bear Necessities, and I also make it a point to do random acts of kindness, (Like paying for the person behind me in the Starbucks drive-thru).

    And even though it isn’t necessarily a donation, I always bring a big tin of Garrett’s popcorn to work around Christmastime 😉

  11. I donate to MAZON annually, and I have contributed writing to their monthly newsletter. I also donate clothing annually and plan to do so again before the end of 2011.

  12. Off to get cheese/caramel popcorn for our holiday party at the office! Dependable and delicious! My colleagues will love it.

  13. My charitable plans are to serve Christmas Eve dinner at PADS shelter in the western suburbs and to participate in the gift basket program, too. I always try to think about those in need around the holidays and to, each day, act in ways that are generous, kind and respectful!

  14. I’m donating to our local food pantry.

  15. I’ll plan to fund a few more ventures on Kiva before the year ends.

  16. I love and have donated to the organization Gift of Adoption!

  17. To find a charity that is more hospitable to LGBTQ people (and Harry Potter fans) than the Salvation Army, and volunteer for them the week before Christmas. If there is such a group that does work on the South Side, even better.

  25. I’m going to be donating to CPL Cares, a charity that was just started to benefit the 182 members of Chicago Public Library’s staff who will be without jobs on January 2, 2012. It’s a worthwhile effort!
