Wrapping Gifts For Needy Children Is A Great Way To Spend Giving Tuesday

By
Home Stager with Sharon Tara Transformations

Two weeks ago I wrote about the Operation Santa Claus program

and my participation this year...

Operation Santa Claus - Bringing Holiday Cheer To Those In Need

 

My fellow home stagers from our local RESA (Real Estate Staging Association) chapter and I were given a family to sponsor...three children, ages 10, 6 and 5.

I am very proud to say that we were able to get everything on the children's wish lists!

 

Today we gathered at my home and we wrapped all the Christmas presents. 

How perfect that today just happens to be Giving Tuesday!

 

 We hope our three "adopted" children are very happy on Christmas morning.

We hope that they feel as much joy opening the presents 

as we felt buying and wrapping them!

 

One side note:

The little girl's wish list had games on it.

I can't tell you how excited I was to find the PERFECT game for her. 

Perfect, that is, in that it is coming from a group of Home Stagers....

Object of the game is to be the first to get all your rooms furnished!

Hi Sharon Tara, that little girl is going to be so very happy. I haven't wrapped presents in years, I'm not good at it at all. You guys have done a great job.

Beth Atalay  We bought and wrapped gifts for the girl and her two brothers. It really was so much fun. But, when I saw that game....just couldn't resist it. LOL

Ron and Alexandra Seigel  I've always enjoyed wrapping. I love to get creative with the ribbon and paper, but we kept it pretty simple for these gifts though. The paper was really cute and had matching gift tags. It really wasn't difficult.

Thank you Michael Jacobs !!

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD Thank you! We did enjoy it. It was a really nice day! I hope a new tradition!

That is a showering of blessings. I see you girls are very kind and generous people and the children will be very thankful indeed.

 Who knew there was a staging game. How cool is that and what fun you all had. Maybe with that game there will be a future stager now how awesome would that be.

Making the season bright for those who would otherwise not have that happen has to make you feel great and the children thrilled at what Santa has brought !

Debbie Reynolds  It made us all very happy to do it. Thank you!

Sharon Lee  She could be a stager or maybe start a moving company. LOL

I don't know though because I played a lot of Monopoly when I was a kid and I'm no land baron. LOL

Sally K. & David L. Hanson  If only we could see their reaction. I hope they are happy with our choices. I have to imagine that they will be very happy.

Hi Sharon -- gift wrapping?  Isn't that why gift bags were invented?   Nice cause - great effort!

Michael Jacobs  I love wrapping gifts, but then I take it to another level...I tend to get carried away creatively.  Imagine that. LOL

Santa's helpers look amazing in their hats and tinsel. And it's just like you to find the perfect furniture "staging" game! Merry Christmas!

Sharon Tara - Thank you for opening up your home to these ladies and to all of you for opening your hearts to three adopted children. Because of you, there are three less children who will be forgotten. I pray they have a good life and receive many blessings in countless ways.

Pat Starnes, Brandon, MS  I actually bought the game yesterday for my granddaughter, Jacinda, for Christmas.  Now I will be able to play it!

Patricia Feager  I hope so too! Wouldn't it be wonderful to actually know more about them. At least we know they are taken care of for Christmas!
