What is a gift?
A gift is something we give
from our hearts. We may give it to someone we know, a family member, one

on the street, a victim of a natural disaster, a refugee from war, an orphaned
a victim of AIDS.
Sometimes we want to give, but we don't know how. How do
we give to a homeless person in our home town? How do we give to an orphan in a foreign
country? Can we give a personalized gift such as a

Opportunities to Give are Plentiful: Regardless of your formal plans, you will inevitably encounter opportunities to give
to people in need during your travels. Almost anywhere in the world, there are people, often young children, asking for help in the streets.
Give what you can and be supportive by buying local handcrafts or tipping street entertainers. If your children are with you, this may
be an occasion to teach them the joy of giving and helping others. Or go the next step to make giving a part of your plan. Plan to give
and enjoy the opportunity to make someone smile! (It may be a good idea to keep an extra
purse or wallet
of small denomination bills or coins as your gift giving wallet.) Remember, you don't have to go out of your way to find people in need: they are just
about everywhere you may possibly travel. But, if you are interested in visiting an orphanage, for example, most orphanages welcome visitors, especially
those bearing gifts. See the Give-to-Orphans page for gifts ideas.
