FYI, it isn't too late to make someone's Christmas a bit brighter and make yourself feel good to boot... The Christmas Bureau of Austin is still in need of people to sponsor families. You can donate money to a family, to the organization, or choose a family and do all of the shopping and deliver the goods yourself. If you're in Austin, go to http://www.cbofaustin.org/. I'm sure that there are plenty of organizations that still need help wherever you may be, though.
