@BR Ednote:Editor’s Note: Each Christmas season, Bradenton Herald staff select their favorite gift selections from local businesses and nonprofits.
Gift suggestion: Adopt-A-Manatee.
Description: For a $35 donation to the Save the Manatee Club, you can adopt a manatee. The donation gives you an adoption certificate, photo and biography of a manatee, a 2010 calendar, a one-year membership in Save the Manatee Club and an informational book on manatees.
Why I like it: It makes a great gift while supporting a good cause.
Where you can buy it: www.savethe manatee.org.
