Making a difference in the life of someone in need this holiday season is as easy as swiping your credit card at these Giving Machines.

Starting on Nov. 26 through the end of December, a group of local and international nonprofits have banded together to bring the spirit of giving to Lincoln Square by setting up charitable Giving Machines. The idea is simple: Instead of junk food, these Giving Machines let you purchase various items that will be distributed by aid organizations this holiday season.

Donations range from simple things like socks or Christmas dinner for a needy local family, to mosquito nets to fight malaria and a “school in a box” to provide education in developing countries. Items are priced from $3 to $250, so anyone can give whatever they can.
