Christmas is over and despite what Fox News says, there is no “war” on Christmas (if there was, it would be against retail stores putting out Christmas decorations before Halloween is over.
I’ve found I take far more joy from giving gifts than receiving them. This year, we gave gifts of basic necessities to a children’s charity in Southern California for a boy 16 and a girl 13. What did they ask for? iPads, iPods, Videogames? Nope. Basics like shoes, pants, underwear and socks were on this list. Aside from giving gifts to our family, what was your giving experience this holiday season?
This is a blog and its all about starting a conversation. Christmas might be over but the needs of local charities remain great. Whether its dropping off a bag of groceries, volunteering at a shelter or writing a check, we can all do our part.
Don’t forget The Eli Home in Anaheim is still fundraising and needs support to keep their doors open and provide care for broken families.
