For the last few years I've made donations to Heifer International in lieu of gifts for some of my family (who really don't need more crap to live with). The gifts range from a heifer ($500) to a flock of chickens or ducks ($20) to Women in Livestock Development support ($10,000) to honeybees ($30). This year they're even sending cards to the people to whom you dedicate the gift, so it'll take cards off your mailing list as well.
The Door Is Ajar.
