Buy a painting.

I was listening to NPR and heard about two artists who have found an interesting way to make charitable donations. Justin Gignac and Christine Santora paint pictures of items representing donations they want to make. For example, they wanted to donate a cow through Heifer International so they painted a cow and sold it for the amount of the donation they then made.

Visit, and scroll from left to right to view the paintings. 100% of the price is donated to charity, but since you get the painting you don't get the tax write-off. Check out their online gallery maybe you'll find something you like, for your wall or for our world.
