A friend of my sister's started this program over at Stanford University. We gave my mother a one hundred dollar "gift card" to the site for her birthday this year, and she really enjoyed it. The site is called Kiva, and it focuses on helping the working poor. You fund workers around the world, choosing who you want to loan cash to, and then as their businesses succeed, they pay you back, and you can (hopefully) start the process all over again. Granted, nothing guaranteed, but it's still a better use of disposable income than, say, gambling. Think of it like The Sims, only in real life.
