Hey! My BFF's b-day is on the 21st but we've been fighting a LOT recently...I'm not even sure if she wants to be my friends anymore...but anyway, I don't know if I should get her something, since she's not really talking to me and if I get her something, I don't know what to get her (Hopefully something around $10-$15, and something so she can forgive me, for whatever I did wrong, like maybe something original and unique and creative, and please don't say making something, I don't have that good of supplies and I'm nto so crafty myself!) PLEASE HELP ME!

As often as i can i will write something to do to
serve others or raise awarness on the comments of the main post.It will be great for me and anyone who wants to read!
Sometimes when people here charity they roll there eyes and taek out their check books, but I am trying to change that!
I have this great charity i wanted everyone to here about:
FMSC (Feed My Starving Children)
You go and bag food for children in places like Haiti, parts in Africa, Mexico
They also have jewlery and bags made by the people there so they are able to make a profit!
Don't feel the need to donate or go work a bunch because i am not trying to guilt trip. Its just a great place for birthdays and its fun to help bag the food! This is helping to raise awarness for FMSC.
Does anybody else have a great charity or ideas to serve others?
And I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter or any other holiday you may be celebrating!
