Last minute Christmas gifts charity - Ιδέες για χριστουγεννιάτικα δώρα με φιλανθρωπικό σκοπό

 Για ελληνικά εδώ
Christmas draw close; Only 8 days are left! OMG! I was so taken with the physio visits and my rehabilitation exercises in addition to the babies that I just realized I need to speed up to provide gifts for everyone. And since this year I am not able to go shopping myself due to my broken leg, I will buy everything online. Moreover, I decided that this year I will go manly for alternative gifts, that give back also to society and since I run out of time, I opt for short deliveries. 
The last years, I foisted a budget on me which mounts to 10-15 € per gift, which I try not to exceed. Hence, here are some of my ideas for this year:

$25 loan (slightly over my budget but worths it) to people without access to traditional banking systems, who need money for their business. When the borrower repays the loan (99% repayment rate), the money returns to your account, and you can loan it out again to someone else. For more info go to KivaThis is going to be the perfect gift for my husband - I already found the borrower to whom I will lend money in my husband-s name.

Vaccination yes or no?

Today I had my girls vaccinated against MMR. Every night before any vaccination so far, I hardly sleep due to what I have read and heard but part of me feels like I did what I ought to do for them. 
The choice to vaccinate my babies, (the mandatory ones) was not made in a vacuum, on the contrary, I did an investigation and got  informed about whether the vaccines worth the risk or not.

Vegan Apple Pie- Μηλόπιτα νηστίσιμη χωρίς λακτόζη (Βέγκαν)

                                                                                       Για ελληνικά πιο κάτω 
I officially put my foot down after 3 months!I started physio last Monday to rehabilitate the foot and since then I put 20 kg weight on my left foot. I still use the crutches but for me this is a new milestone! Until now I was moving around with my foot dangling so now that I can step on, it feels wonderful, despite the pain sometimes. 

Thus, I thought to celebrate it with a delicious vegan apple pie! I am not vegan but since I strive to burn calories due to my leg situation, I prefer to eat less fatty foods. Furthermore it is the perfect snack for my girls! It is quick to make and leaves you with few dishes to wash (actually two!). I discovered this recipe on the web, I slightly ammended, still I guarantee 100% success. This healthy and easy apple pie is loved by everyone who tried it, so I thought I should post it here!
