REMEMBER THOSE IN NEED AT CHRISTMAS ... DONATE NOW

By
Real Estate Agent with Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate Signature Service

 

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.

Gloria,

Thanks for reminding all of us that children are bearing the worst part of this economic situation. All of us know families that are hungry, if we will take a few minutes to think!

On Wednesday, Nov. 17th, our local newspaper ran an article about a 6 year old young lady named McKenzie who replied when she was asked what she wanted for Christmas "1,000 toys!" Lest you think this is a selfish young lady, no, she wants these toys for children with cancer at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta. Immediately I had to get involved in her drive to collect these 1,000 toys! If you do not know someone who needs help, email me at knightfreida@yahoo.com and give me your phone number. We would love your help!

McKenzie started her toy drive last year when a friend was treated at this hospial for leukemia. This is pretty amazing--isn't it?

Larry, starting early is great, good for you and your wife!  We all get so busy the closer we get to Christmas, that often these poor children are forgotten.

I wish our school did that. We came across our families on craigslist. After a few emails back and forth making sure they were for real, decided to take on the kids Christmas lists. We have done this for the last 3 years running. And the 2 families we helped in the past have gotten back on their feet an are now helping families this year. Great post!
