Paying It Forward: Giving to the Kids

 

Most holiday seasons, I find myself giving a little here and a little there, showing support in small ways for a number of local groups or charities.

This year, however, I have decided to focus on children. I have purchased toys to donate to the Marine Corps Reserve's Toys for Tots, and I also will participate in my YMCA's Giving Tree for kids.  The Giving Tree is full of tags with the first name of a child who is hopeful for a gift. The tag contains a small list of items that the child is wishing for. 

This year, I selected a 17-year-old boy. The younger kids are always easy to buy for, but the older kids - not so easy.  Instead of making numerous donations to various charities, I am going to give this boy a very nice holiday surprise.  I'm as excited as a tiny tot!

Melissa,

I love to give throughout the year, but during the holiday season is my favorite time of the year.  For the past 4 years I have had the pleasure of adopting a family.  This year I have two girls, 13 and 4.  You are correct that buying for younger ones is easy, but I will make the 13 year old's holiday a memorable one this year as well.  Thanks for sharing!

Hi Kathryn -- I bet there will be one happy 17 year old this year due to your generosity.  Along with  your other charitable efforts you share a very  nice example of paying-it-forward.

Hi Kathryn - Toys for Tots is a great cause, helping to ensure that many who would otherwise be left out get to enjoy the holidays. Kudos to you for supporting it.

William, those angels and snowflakes are sure to bring magic to that family.

Thank you, Jeff. Yes, challenging, that 17-year-old. Luckily, he left some hints.

Belinda, if I can add some sparkle to a few kids' holiday, I will be quite happy.

I know you will make this 17 year old boy very happy, which makes me feel very happy as well and I don't even know them.  I love knowing that people will be happy!
