As Valentine’s Day approaches, keep in mind this Buzzfeed data: 76% of the people polled (65,000) preferred a love letter to an expensive bracelet. Candy, flowers? Nice, but a gift from the heart wins. So, here’s a way to show you care, and make your special someone a hero.
Donate in his or her honor to your local Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Center. These centers help heal moms, dads, and kids who suffer from substance abuse issues. A generous tax-deductible gift of $25, $50 or more provides those in recovery with a fresh start (full disclosure, The Salvation Army is a client).
