The Make-A-Wish Foundation mainly focuses children between the ages of two and a half and 18 years who are suffering from life-threatening conditions. The foundation aims to make these children's lives happier and more comfortable. It is also possible to refer a child with a life-threatening condition to the foundation so that the foundation can make the child’s holiday experience special.

The Prison Fellowship Organization runs the Angel Tree Church program, which is a unique initiative. The program focuses on helping children whose parents end up in prison. Such children are often stigmatized in society, thus the donations go a long way in showing the children that there are people who care about them having a memorable holiday.

The Salvation Army, which is both a church and a charity, is the easiest to donate to as they are found in most parts of the United States, especially around shopping areas during the holidays. The Salvation Army runs soup kitchens and shelters throughout the country. The foundation also participates in disaster relief and thus is always in need of donations that make the lives of the less fortunate better. All three charities accept donations not only during the Christmas holiday season but all year round.
