Lest we forget our fellow man in the flurry of cookie baking and online shopping, here are a few goings-on in Dallas to tickle your good-will lobe.

The Thing: Deep Ellum Outdoor Market
The Cause: Local artists, crafters and businesses
The Deep Ellum Outdoor Market is setting up shop this Saturday in the covered parking lot behind Café Brazil. Vendors will hawk their one-of-a-kind goods, including clothing, crafts, jewelry and food. Live music and food and drink specials from restaurants around the area will be there to replenish your holiday spirit as you support local vendors and businesses.

The Market will be from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at 2820 Indiana Boulevard.

The Thing: The Whole Foods Market Giving Tree
The Place: Dallas area Whole Foods Markets
The Cause: North Texas Food Bank
This year, my mom put a bush on top of our tree. If you want to do something more practical this holiday season, try Dallas are Whole Foods Markets now through December 31. Shoppers and other do-gooders will be able to purchase "ornaments" worth different amounts at the register and place it on the in-store tree. Whole Foods Market will donate all of the profit to help feed children.

The Thing: 2011 Hunger and Thirst calendar
The Cause: North Texas Food Bank
The NTFB is rolling out a limited edition 2011 calendar stuffed with food porn, 12 exclusive recipes by Kent Rathbun and $24 worth of Central Market coupons. Get it for a $25 donation, including shipping and handling.

If you find yourself feeling charitable but not in the market for a calendar, you can go to the North Texas Food Bank website and purchase a Holiday Card to make a donation in someone's honor.
