A Gift That Gives Back

I struggle every year to find the perfect gift for each person on my holiday list. But amid the usual flurry of requests for electronics, books and sweaters, I find a few family members who don’t ask for anything. So, I’ve resorted to gift cards, which seems somewhat impersonal.

One year, my aunt came up with an idea that seemed both personal and in the befitting of the spirit of the season. She gifted money to the international human rights organization Amnesty International in my name.

The gift had perfectly suited me as I am a strong advocate for human rights. And it also gave her something in return. She didn’t have to pay taxes on the amount she donated as the money came from her IRA.  My aunt was older than 70 ½ years of age, so she could send a check from her IRA account to the charity of my choice.
