The Gift That Gives Twice

Are you looking for a gift idea for someone who enjoys cooking?  Or just eating?  I was browsing through the Williams-Sonoma website ( and discovered that if you purchase a Williams-Sonoma St. Jude eGift Card from any amount between $25.00 to $250.00 and Williams-Sonoma will donate $5.00 to the St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital now through 12/13/15.   You can choose to either have the gift card notification emailed to your recipient or the actual card sent in the mail.  This is a double gift; one to your recipient and a $5.00 donation to the hospital.  I’m sorry I didn’t get this out earlier, I just now discovered it.

This is not meant to be an advertisement or endorsement for Williams-Sonoma, but it is a way to maximize your giving.  For what it is worth, I have done my share of shopping, both through the website and at the store, and I am always pleased with my purchases.

This is also a good time to remember those people in assisted living or in nursing homes.  Some of these people have no one to remember them, and some of these people get little or no mail.  Contact your local nursing home to see if the administrator can recommend someone who would enjoy a gift or a card.  In this situation so little can do so much.

Sorry for the brevity of this post, but I wanted to get this information out in a timely manner.



No one is useless in this world who lightens the burden of it to anyone else.
