Be Charitable This Christmas Season

Here we are, just a few days before Christmas. If you still haven't found that perfect gift for someone special, here's an idea. Make a donation to a charitable organization in that person's name.

In South Mississippi, there are hundreds of organizations that depend on donations from the public. It's their lifeblood.

These are groups that help the homeless get back on their feet, groups that help rebuild homes for Katrina victims, groups that help our children in after school programs and so many more organizations are making a difference in our community.

To see a list of some of the organizations you might want to give to, go to and click on the community page.

If you don't have the financial means to donate money to one of them, then maybe you can donate your time in honor of a friend or loved one.

Giving back is the perfect gift for Christmas.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to
