Wishing you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Happy Eid, Happy Diwali, and any I’ve missed. Every religion on this earth advises giving to the less fortunate. Even non-religious people recognize the importance of sharing.
While there are plenty of worthwhile charities to give to, sometimes it’s the person-to-person giving that means the most.
Some examples of our better natures:
Family Promise of Anoka County, MN: “In this season of giving, one of our volunteers asked her family to buy gifts for FPAC instead of each other and they delivered so many wonderful things to support FPAC. One of the items was a gift card to Target. This gift card came at the right time! This morning, a 10 year old FPAC guest was crying because she did not have a pair of gym shoes that was required for school today. Thanks to our recent donation, we are off to Target to purchase a pair of athletic shoes and then deliver them to her school just in time for her school activity.”
Family Promise has branches in many cities, and of course there are other very worthy charities.
Giving is a gift to the giver as well as the receiver. Your heart grows and your world expands. You’ll have a spring in your step. Try it, you’ll like it.
