Christmas is coming in just a few weeks. With all the hustle and bustle, wish lists and Christmas sales, joyful Christmas music on the radios, and colorful lights decorating the night landscape, we sometimes forget that there are families who aren’t experiencing “the most wonderful time of the year.” For low-income families, it can be be very disheartening, depressing, and downright frustrating to know their children won’t experience the joy of Christmas. For a parent to feel they have let down their children even though circumstances are beyond their control, it has to be the worst experience.

Giving is Contagious – Catch It!
If you have a Christmas tree, decorations and lights you would like to donate…or if you would like to help a family in need, please leave a comment below and include a town and state near where you are located. If you can’t help a family on your own, ask friends or co-workers to join in together to help one family. That’s what my daughters have done to help two families this Christmas. Their friends and co-workers have come together to donate trees, decorations, lights, tree skirt, books, videos, doll house, musical instruments, Christmas pajamas, and more. Giving is contagious…it spreads by word of mouth…the best kind of contagious.
