As we prepare ourselves for the holiday season, lets not forget the gift of giving. Giving doesn’t necessary involve money, it could even include: volunteering at your local soup kitchen or even spending extra time with someone who needs it.
Though giving is something that should be done throughout the year, it’s really important during the holiday seasons. While some households are surrounded by family, sharing laughs around the fire-place and drinking hot coca after a big meal and hours of opening gifts, other households are just trying to figure out where their next meal will come from. We never know when we, ourselves could end up in a situation where we rely on the help of others.
This year I decided to give the gift of giving by participating in the Salvation Army Angel Tree. I am very excited to bring a smile to a child’s face this holiday season. I would like to know how you all are giving back this season. Email your pictures and a brief description to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will feature your stories in a follow-up post.
Deadlines to submit will be December 17th.
