What a great and wonderful thing to be part of; kids are so entitled to enjoy Christmas and this year with the economy being harder it is so hard on families.

Diane, I am going to follow suit with you on this. I am a firm believer in giving to these organizations, along with the youth homes and the homeless shelters. It takes so little, and helps so much. Thanks for the direction!

Thanks for highlighting the efforts of these folks. There a million reasons to focus on this season as being a time to give rather than receive. One great reason is that it feels so so GOOD.

Tom:  We were blessed to be able to help this humble charity out this year.  The families are so very grateful.

Jane:  You have a generous heart to begin with Jane, your donations will be greatly appreciated.

Jordon:  You are correct... it is so much better to GIVE than receive... and it does the heart good when it's done.

Marchel:  You can take the lead and initiate..... your efforts to steer the other members could start creativeness to flow within your group.  You'd be surprised at how easy it can be conducted together.

This is nice.  Truly unselfish.  I do wish we could find a way to keep the public involved in these causes all year long and not just at Christmas time.
