View Full Version : Christmas Gift for health & wellness

I wanted to share with you, something I do at Christmas time, I have actually 40 other people in my circle of friends who do the same.

Christmas time is the time for us to think about others. It comes right after Thanksgiving and hopefully, we all are still feeling that thankful feeling.

The food banks are always in need of things, but this time of the year, by giving something additional like donating a new smoke alarm, or one that detects carbon monoxide, or a blood pressure machine you could save a life or lives.

As tight as my budget is, I give food, and one of the others listed every Christmas.

We used to do Kris Kringles in the office and at home but instead we donate money that we used to spend on gifts and give it to "Christmas Wish".
They take the money and buy children whatever they put on their Christmas lists.
I was listening one year and a 9 year old girl on her Christmas list wanted to go to see a movie at a movie theater, all her friends have gone but she never had.
I couldn't believe that something so small (to me) was a childs wish, so after that i started trying to get everyone to give a little bit extra at Christmas.

This year, the need might be greater at the local food banks, if you give, remember to donate a couple of toys, too.

As you know Peter, it never takes much to make a child happy.

Time spent is so much more precious than mere money will ever be.

Your tips are really helpful. I am trying to attend gatherings and What I would really like to do is avoid the emphasis on food altogether.

For examply I never did cook a turkey on Thanksgiving, or eat any pie. i bought these things and gave them to needy families. Spent the rest of the day with Margita washing and sorting clothes for donation.
