It’s that time of year again-hot cocoa, spiced cider, pumpkin pie, presents under the tree, sparkly lights and lots of good cheer…Christmas! It’s easy to get swept away in giving to our family and loved ones, but it’s important to remember that there are those out there with so much less than we have. It doesn’t take very much time or even very much money to make a huge difference in these kid’s lives.
The staff at Philanthropy has been having a lot of fun choosing kids from Angel Tree to “adopt” and get gifts for. There are many, many families in need this year. Please take a moment and think about the impact you could make. It doesn’t matter whether you’re able to give a little or a lot. Every bit helps.
Here are some resources:Compassion International - Give a little: a chicken. Give a lot: a kitchen! Angel Tree – Choose just one thing, or everything on their wish list. Nashville Rescue Mission – Give a little: granola bars and socks. Give a lot: cameras and perfume. Operation Christmas Child – Pack a shoe box full of Christmas goodies to send to kids over-seas. St. Jude Children’s Hospital – 100% of all proceeds benefit St. Jude’s patients and researchers. Heifer International – Give goats, sheep, rabbits…even honeybees to help provide food and resources for different communities in poverty stricken countries.
Let us know what you’re doing this Christmas to share the love!
