For some, Christmas is the happiest time of the year; families and friends come together, have dinners/parties and exchange gifts. But for other’s it’s like any other day, a struggle, a worry, a doubt. What will they eat, how long will they live, where will they sleep, how will they tell their child Santa “forgot” their present…?
This Holiday season, why not try to go the extra mile to share with those whom need it most? Here are some ideas:
1+3: Thermal socks and winter coats to a homeless shelter, women/men’s shelter.
2: Canned goods to a homeless shelter or food bank. Make sure they are not expired!
4: New toy(s) to a family in need. There are usually hampers collecting new toys for families in need at school and community centers.
1: Soup Kitchen. Help prep/serve food on Christmas Day.
2: Hospital Ward. Visit those who were forgotten. Read Christmas stories or simply converse. Call your local hospital and ask how you can help!
3: Animal Shelter. Help feed, clean and play with abandoned and/or abused animals.
It’s important to stop in the midst of the Holiday Buzz to count the blessings; love, family, friendships, food, health, a home and so on…
Promise me you’ll spread the holiday cheer by sharing what you can?
