Give a little this Christmas

If there's anything I want to leave you with this Christmas season it is to GIVE. Find a great charity and donate. Don't listen to 'em when they say you're just a fool to believe you can change the world. 10 cents a day can save a starving child. Pick up the phone, reach out a hand, make a difference. It's Christmas.

If you don't have money, sometimes time can be even more valuable. Volunteer. Give a little of yourself. Remember, with even the smallest act of goodwill, you CAN change the world.

Merry Christmas.

This is an excellent post and point. Giving, no matter the amount of time or money makes a difference AND you will feel so good about yourself when you give to others.

Happy Holidays!

I sadly forgot about sponsoring a family this year.

Thanks for the reminder.

Good point
I sponsor two children through World Vision so I consider that part of my Christmas donation. I also gave money to the Salvation Army and Toys for Tots this year.

Merry Christmas everyone

I agree!


This year, my family and I donated our Christmas gift money to Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NYC.

Giving is way better!

Merry Christmas!
