Read this article on Cnet about how online donations are up this year. As more people are shopping online, you can also stop by your favorite charities Web site and give to those less fortunate. That bodes well for AADB which gives 100 percent of your donations to development and cultural projects in Bangou.

I’ve even tried donating myself. I gave part of my donation to AADB via the Web site. It works great, even sends you an email receipt which you can use as a tax write-off.
