We are so busy in our daily lives, we sometimes forget those who are less fortunate. There are so many needy families who won't be able to provide anything for their chldren at Christmas,, not a toy, or a nice meal.
In the public schools here, each class room "adopts" a needy family and the children are given the family abstract, i.e. one mother, one father, 2 girls, and 1 boy, etc. with the ages of the children.
They post this information on the outside of the classroom so every class member can choose what kind of gift to donate, whether practical or fun gift. They even collect non perishable food to provide a meal at Christmas.
My office has also adopted the spirit of giving and each year a month or so before Christmas, we place large containers in our offices to collect non-perishable food items for those who need it.
The spirit of giving is alive and well... remember those who are less fortunate.. and be thankful for your many blessings.
Give to others....it is such a rewarding experience to know you are helping give a child a Christmas!!
Your generosity and compassion for others will come back to you ten-fold.
