Give a Book, Change a Life....
The Girl Scouts have kicked off their Reading Rocks 2007 campaign... There are very few gifts better than a good book.
My suggestion is to support your local indie bookseller, Carpe Librum, and encourage reading by picking up a copy of a book that may have impacted your life, then drop it in the collection bin at the store. There are Girl Scouts of all ages, too, so keep that in mind.

I gave out scary kid's books one Halloween. I had them divided into age appropriate piles and let the kids choose from their pile. Turns out I had to give chocolate along with in order to get the kids on board, but they ended up really liking the deal.
I remember one kid who was skeptical at first, got into it and demanded to be given "the best kid's book you got".
The Bijou is showing "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe"... you can donate books there, too.
