Give a gift that gives back

With Father’s Day just around the corner (Sunday, June 15), our thoughts often turn to what to get our dads - and if he’ll actually use it. Does he really need another tie? Or another “World’s Greatest Dad” mug to add to his collection? Perhaps, rather than stressing over what to gift wrap, we should think about what our father figures have done for us – the small differences and gestures that are often unseen by us on a daily basis – and the impact he has had on the family and the communities he is a part of. As we recognize our own dads this Sunday, check out these nonprofit organizations with fathers in mind.

The National Fatherhood Initiative
With a mission that aims to educate fathers on how to become involved, committed, and responsible fathers as well as developing leaders, the National Fatherhood Initiative works to improve the well-being of children by encouraging healthy and meaningful relationships between parent and child. 

The Wounded Warrior Project
Founded by veterans and friends to help returning military personnel, the Wounded Warrior Project seeks to support veterans, many of whom are fathers, to become well-adjusted and successful members of society by meeting the needs of injured service members.   

Heifer International 
By empowering communities worldwide to transform hunger and poverty into hope and prosperity, Heifer International helps fathers and their families work towards a better quality of life using sustainable agriculture and commerce in areas with a long history of poverty. 

And if you are still at a loss for that perfect Father’s Day Gift, consider choosing a gift that supports a worthwhile cause.

Happy Father’s Day 

Today is the one celebratory day of the year to show your appreciation and thanks to your male architect.  In reality this usually means a mad scramble to the card shop and a confused head scratch wondering if flowers are acceptable to purchase for a man or is it safer to go with the traditional option of chocolates or tie. A great way to treat a dad is to make a brunch, bagels and cream cheese, eggs benedict and warm fresh baked croissants.  Go down the American route with a corned beef hash or maple soaked French toast.  If you really want to impress a shoulder of lamb or slow cooked beef brisket can make a mouth-watering Sunday roast, with crunchy potatoes and gooey chocolate pot puddings for dessert.  Whatever way you choose to pamper them, remember  they say the best way to a man’s heart is through their belly!
