Gifts from the Heart
One of the hidden treasures to be found in times of economic uncertainty is a renewed
sense of connection to the things in life that matter the most: family and friends,
home and community. In that spirit, Energy Times offers this guide to gifts designed to
foster well-being through enhanced health, environmental concern and donations to
worthy causes. We hope you enjoy a most meaningful holiday season.
