i was browsing about all those charity websites where you can buy something for someone in a third world country on behalf of a christmas gift recipient (you know, goats or a garden or a water filter), and i found this one:

http://www.oxfamshop.org.au/shop/prodview.asp?iprodgrpid=120539&iDeptID=120868

sewing training for disadvantaged women, including the fabulously named "Hot Girls Fancy Stitch" group that helps women with HIV and AIDS increase their incomes...
well, i added it to my xmas list, and i thought some other craftsters might want to do the same Smiley

oh that looks great
im adding it to mine too!

i always find this issue difficult because i think some people would perhaps like the idea, but still be miffed they didn't get a gift! So I'm thinking of splitting in half, or say taking $10 from each pressie, and then buying an unwrapped gift from it.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction

Let's stick to regular Monopoly. The game is crazy enough as it is; how can an iron be a landlord?

Thanks for posting this. Members of my family have done this sort of thing. It always goes down well.

I love oxfam. The community aid abroad shops are also great places for christmas gifts. Big gifts, and also smaller less expensive things. They have an online shop and also a couple of shops in Melbourne. (Sorry I don't have info for other states)
