It is better to give than to receive, which is why the person who gives themselves a gift must regift it to themselves to overcome the despair of receiving it. Break out of a perpetual loop with this Groupon: for $22, you get one adopt-a-sea-otter-group charity kit from Defenders of Wildlife (a $45 value). The adoption kit includes:
- A 12-inch, plush sea-otter doll.

- A two-sided sea-otter fact sheet.<p>
An award-winning charity organization, Defenders of Wildlife works to preserve endangered species through symbolic animal adoptions, which generate proceeds that support conservation efforts around the world, and have garnered the organization recognition from Reader’s Digest and Worth magazine. A sea-otter-group charity kit equips marine-life lovers with a two-sided fact sheet about these playful and endangered creatures, as well as a framed personalized certificate of adoption and 5”x7” photo of a sea otter to display on fridges and workplace cubicles, or to paste over lesser-known cousins in family portraits. Adopters also receive an extra-soft, 12-inch, plush sea-otter doll and a kids’ wildlife activity book. More than 90% of Defenders of Wildlife’s 2010 funds received went directly to wildlife-conservation programs and support services. Each donation works to further conservation efforts both on the ground and by state agencies to ensure better water quality for sea otters and other marine life.
