The holiday season is the perfect time of year to take a moment to appreciate all that you have. It is unfortunate that not everyone is as lucky as I am. During the year, and especially at the holidays, I try to give back. With children dreaming of Santa coming, I typically donate to organizations that support children who need help to make their holidays special. This year, my entire family has decided to adopt children, families, elderly and even shelter animals instead of exchanging gifts in hopes of making an even bigger impact in our communities and celebrating the true meaning of Christmas.
This year, I encourage everyone to give back to the people in your community that need it most. Even the smallest donation can impact someone’s life. There are great organizations locally and nationwide that would love your support. If you’re a shopper like me, find an organization that allows you to donate purchased items. If time is not on your side, organizations would be grateful for your donation of any size so they will be able to purchase things that are needed most.
Here are some of my favorites:
Have a very Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year!
