"Giving machines" make donating to charity easier than ever

In 10 cities around the world, you’ll find “giving machines,” which are actually vending machines that help people donate to charity with the push of a button.

The machines offer opportunities to donate items like books, meals and personal care items.

There are also some unique options, like donating a chicken to a family in need on the other side of the world.

It’s the third year the machines have been in place during the holiday season -- and are a big success, raising millions of dollars for local and global charities.
