San Ramon, CA (December 3, 2008) - If you want to live the Christmas spirit, then take action by learning about twelve select charities worldwide. Visit Charity Gift Boxes ( to become inspired.

When you visit the website, you will see twelve gifts, each of which symbolically represents a charity. When you click on a gift, you can read a profile of the charity and decide whether to visit that charity's website to give time or money. We have selected a range of charities to reflect the wide interests of our visitors.

You can take it further by visiting "livesimply: promise" online to sign a pledge to learn about the charities featured on Charity Gift Boxes. The "livesimply: promise" website's purpose is to give people a way to create and sign pledges to live in solidarity with those in need. A special pledge about Charity Gift Boxes is already available for you to sign.
