Five Gift Ideas for James McGovern

If you are feeling generous, here are five gift ideas you can give to me for the holidays...

  1. Many folks know that I am the leader for the Hartford Chapter of OWASP. To hold a meeting requires incurring several expenses. It would be great if the community would consider making a small donation of $20 that will be used to cover Pizza for upcoming meetings.
  2. I am savage in the pursuit of making poverty history and encourage bloggers to add the banner to their blog.
  3. Giving money to the needy is good but helping them start their own business is better. The best way to do so is to embrace the notion of micro-financing where folks in third world countries can receive loans at low interest rates. I am a participant in Kiva and encourage others to make a small loan.
  4. If you prefer donations instead, then please consider making a donation to the Palestine Red Crescent Society. The Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) is a national humanitarian society which provides a wide range of health, social and other humanitarian services to the Palestinian People throughout the Middle East.
  5. It is easy to write a check but harder to make time to help others in a personal way. If you know how to swing a hammer or have other home improvement skills, please consider volunteering for Habitat for Humanity...
