Charitable giving is a top trend this holiday season, so when I came across this one, I had to pass it along to you. Several years ago, while on a weekend visit out at my friend Jen’s in Pennsylvania, she surprised me with tickets to see Jane Goodall in lecture. It was a fascinating evening, as Ms. Goodall was launching her new initiative to foster environmental and animal studies in schools. Now, her organization has an auction going on — closing at 5pm EST tonight — http://www.cmarket.com/catalog/browseCatalog.do?ID=46f88e5054a4a5a068687493d5538ccd&cate=Books&sortby=. So if anyone on your list is a fan of Ms. Goodall’s, perhaps this is the perfect place to get a gift.
