It may be rather late to mention this, but if anyone would like to give to a worthwhile project this Christmas, the Buckets of Love project of Catholic Welfare and Development (CWD) in Cape Town, is providing buckets of basic foodstuffs to needy families and looking for people to sponsor them. CWD is a very reputable organisation, whose various other projects are also worth supporting. They also provide e-cards and downloadable printable cards to send as alternative gifts.
