Save 35% on a nearly perfect present
It’s hard to find the ideal present: an affordable offering that will tug at the imagination as well as the heart and make the recipient feel more alive. A gift subscription to The Sun
may not be perfect — it won’t last forever, only a year — but it’s a great gift for someone with a curious mind.
During the holidays we offer a steep discount: give a one-year gift
— or renew your own subscription
— for $39, and order as many additional gifts
as you like for only $25 each. That’s 35% off our regular rate.

Acts Of Love
An essay by Ruth L. Schwartz
“It’s not that I ever forget I donated a kidney to my lover, G., twenty months ago; it’s just that, for me, that single act pales beside the myriad ‘acts of love’ it takes to keep going, to keep on loving, day by day, a person who is chronically ill.”
