Do me a favor, go out and buy a few toys, or a few gift cards to places like Abercrombie, Pink or Hollister and take them to the nearest Toys for Tots drop off. I have realized a few things over the past few years. One is the more you give, the more you receive. I believe Karma exists.
I have been fortunate and I want to share that good fortune year round but especially at Christmas. My family and I are involved in Adopt a Family charities every year. I don’t tell you this so you will think better of me, I tell you this to motivate you. When you see the Christmas lists of those in need it is humbling. Seeing a list that includes “warm coat” and “warm socks” makes me realize how lucky I am and how much we take for granted.
It’s late in the season but those looking to provide gifts for needy kids are still working. Take 15 minutes out of your day. Not only do you help someone else but, you will help yourself. There is not better feeling than anonymous giving. no expectation of a thank you or recognition, just the good feeling that comes from helping those in need.
