Instead of presents this year, I'd like to ask for donations to be made via Changing the Present. As most of you will know, my uncle is an army veteran and I'm incredibly proud of him. I'm asking for donations to veterans organisations so that other people in the same position as him receive the support that they deserve. This will be a far better present than some random piece of clothing I never wear, or novelty item that gets boring after a few minutes. Thank you in advance to anyone who chooses to support this important cause on my behalf.

While you're here, consider creating your own wish-list. There are loads of causes to choose from, so I'm sure there'll be something that you care about. Knowing that you're making a difference is far more rewarding than any gift, so I highly recommend it!
