Do something kind for a foster child: check out the Northern Stars Holiday Giving Program. You can select a male or female child from age 4 to 17 and buy something (or everything) off their wish list. Sure, you'll find the usual Christmas gift wishes: Barbies, scooters, iPods. But there are also some real heart-breakers: Different colored string. A nightgown. Snow boots. A warm comforter. (If you don't have time to get to the store, you can choose your kid, then click a link that allows you to shop through Amazon and have your gift sent to the collection site.)
