    I want to forgo excessive gifting this year

    With so many recent natural disasters and international strife occurring, I do not intend spend large amounts and Black Friday hours gifting to those that don't necessarily need them.

    I suggest that we take the money we would waste on upgraded televisions, phones, gaming systems, jewelry, and fiftieth pair of shoes to donate to well vetted nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that provide food, shelter, and project sustaining education to people suffering from calamities and war.

    I vetted these organizations for my own donations and have several others that I support. My gifts for my family and friends will be made as donations in their names to various peace and survival organizations.
