The Christmas season is a great time to get involved with local charities as the need is so great. Find a charity that you can be passionate about and volunteer - your time, resources, whatever you can. It's so rewarding to bring a smile to someone's face.
One of our favorite charities to work with has long been The Salvation Army. Their toy drive, Toy 'N' Joy is beginning soon - adopt a family or donate toys. Better yet, volunteer at the toy distribution the week of Christmas. This is one of my most memorable holiday experiences - helping parents pick out toys that their kids will get to open on Christmas morning. What a joy!
If toys aren't your thing, I encourage you to find something else. We should all be volunteering as we are so blessed to have everything we do. You have a lot to offer others, so share it!
