Give a gift this year that will help others | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

What a great idea to make a donation to a nonprofit organization in honor of someone you care about (“Give the Gift of Caring,” Bainbridge Island Review, Dec. 20, 2019).

My favorite is RESULTS (results.org), an organization of ordinary citizens working with their members of Congress (thanks Rep. Derek Kilmer) to pass initiatives to help those experiencing hunger and poverty. The recent increase in the pledge to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria is one example of their successful work. Domestic efforts include tax fairness initiatives and increasing affordable housing. Why not give the gift of helping others?
