12 Days of...GOOD GIVING

Each day from now until Christmas Eve, Life & Style will highlight a gift that can make a difference in the world. Giving one of these presents can help feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, rescue wildlife, restore the planet. Giving these gifts can make many people happy, including you.

Today’s Gift Idea: Help preserve the biodiversity of the Earth and protect the habitats of endangered species by giving a piece of sterling silver jewelry from the National Wildlife Federation. From panda rings to monkey earrings to dolphin pins to wolf pendants, the collection of silver pieces licensed by NWF makes a fashion statement with an environmental message.

The Payoff: Founded in 1936, the Wildlife Federation counts 4 million members who focus their grass-roots campaigns to educate people about endangered species and habitats and to help conserve the nation’s precious natural resources.

Place Your Order: The silver jewelry collection is sold at most major department stores, including Robinsons-May, where pieces are specially priced at $19.99 for the holidays. Other gifts to benefit the federation can be ordered any time of year by calling (800) 477-5560 or through the federation’s Internet address at
