Gifts From 2010 make the best presents for every occasion

2010 started in devastation in Central America, as the Haiti earthquake killed approximately 160,000 people and affected three million overall. Three months later, another catastrophe occurred, this time in the Gulf of Mexico, as the Deepwater Horizon oil rig exploded, killing eleven and leaking 340,000 gallons of oil into the sea every day, the largest marine oil spill in history.

One disaster in 2010 did have a happy ending, however: after the Chilean mining accident in August, all 33 workers were rescued alive in October, after spending a record 69 days trapped 2,300 feet underground.
