Support Oprah’s “Spend a little, Give a lot” list from the December issue of O Magazine!
“Twenty bucks buys movie tickets or weekend’s worth of lattes. But you can do a world of good—from feeding an endangered animal to educating a child—for even less.”

$1—Two books shipped to a classroom in Africa. In many schoolrooms on the continent, 20 children share one textbook. Visit

$2—A set of drumsticks for a low-income public school student learning to play the drums. Visit

$3—A field trip to a museum, concert or theatrical production for a high-risk youth. Visit

$4—Two hours of prepaid phone time for a soldier stationed overseas to call home. Visit

$5—A one-burner kerosene stove for a family that would typically rely on an open fire. The stove is reusable and less environmentally friendly taxing than the cutting of timber. Visit
