Pay it Forward - Let's have a Merry Christmas

Pay it forward!  April Hayden-Munson's Blog, Realtor (R) Brookfield, Wisconsin

 

I like to be a Secret Santa to someone each year. 

I was needed to help a family celebrate Christmas a little this year that would otherwise not have the opportunity.

 

My heartstrings were pulled a bit by a friend confiding in me about her holiday dilemma.  Things are really tight and she had no money to put something fun under her tree for her son.  She had to get him a coat and boots, but to a boy - that’s no fun.  She really didn’t want to let him down.

 

I surprised her with an envelope with $200 cash and wished her a Merry Christmas.  It made me feel so good to help out. I can just see her smile on Christmas morning when her son gets to open a toy in addition to the necessities she gave him.

What a great thing to do over the Holiday Season. There are so many people struggling this season through the difficult economy. If you can help one person have a happier holiday season it makes the joyfulness of the holidays so much better.

Way to go, April!  We always adopt a family for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  And as much as I love shopping for them, it's always a treat to give them some cash so they can participate in the Spirit of Christmas as well.

April,

That was so nice of you.  Christmas is the season for giving.  Giving from the heart means a lot more than material giving.  We should all do it.  Not only does the receiver feel good, but so does the giver.

Dennis, I hope so!  I believe what comes around goes around - when I need something, hopefully I'll be taken care of.
