How can I remotely reward a friend in San Francisco with a nice night out? Are there gift certificates I could order for a restaurant and deliver them by email to my friend? I know there must be a system for this, but I can't seem to get the google search terms right. [more inside]
I'm looking for a charity related to rebuilding New Orleans to donate to as a gift to someone that used to live there and was heartbroken by the hurricane aftermath. The Red Cross or United Way seem too big and non-specific. I'd like to give to something with a bit more direct impact on improving things there. Suggestions?
A friend just had a premature baby at 32 weeks (just below 4 lbs), and to complicate matters further, she was on vacation with family out of state and will likely be stuck there until the baby is healthy (if they were home, I could go right over and help make food, etc). I'm kind of feeling paralyzed wondering what an appropriate gift would be though. Small baby clothes? Send money/gift certificates to help offset travel bills? Flowers? I'm guessing it'll be a month or so before she comes home.
