Altruism in the Twelfth Month

Now it's December, that lovely holiday month where we feel obligated to and/or genuinely enjoy buying gifts for potentially large numbers of people. Most of us will prowl sales, hand make gifts this year, and buy used in order to save money. Most of us have been seriously affected by this recession/depression.

But I have a simple request to make of you this holiday season- a gift of altruism, to a total stranger, to enhance your life. It only takes a bit of time, and you will improve (maybe even save) someone else's. Also, your karma points will go up (and who doesn't feel better, helping others?).

Here are some ideas:
What other things do you do with your energy and time to give back? I'd love to hear about it!
Thanks in advance for your altruism and selflessness. :)
