You know that check for $24.95 your grandma sent you? Before you head off to the mall to buy something you'll forget about in an hour, may we suggest this alternative: a year of life for a sea turtle? The Adopt a Sea Turtle Gift Box ($25) pays for twelve months of protection for your choice of one of four species of endangered sea turtle (after registration, you get a special photo!), plus it supports the People's Trust for Endangered Species. We've all seen the wildlife documentaries - Mother Nature can be a cold-hearted bitch!
