Giving is a Way of Living...

Young, old, black, white, brown or yellow...we are ALL in this TOGETHER!  

This holiday season, pick 1, 2, or all of the things on the list below...THEN, going forward, no matter what time of year it is, make giving a way of living. =)

Let's make a difference....
~Donate Food
~Volunteer time at a food bank or shelter
~Donate blankets, scarves, gloves, jackets, hats to the homeless
~Shop local

~Visit a senior
~"Adopt" a family

~Grocery shop for someone
~Donate money to charity
~Take a senior to lunch
~Help someone decorate their house who isn't able

~Buy from friends: Crafts, products, books, art, etc.
~Donate toys

~Take someone to see the holiday lights
~Spend time with family and friends
~Read to children; at a library, a shelter or a school

~Shovel snow for a neighbor
~Volunteer to clean the beach
~Recycle trees, boxes, paper, etc.
~When the season is over...pause, reflect, rewind and repeat. =)

Happy Holidays,

Great list Amy.

I agree with Madgew, that's a very comprehensive list of good things to do during this upcoming holiday extravaganza. Thanks for posting it.

Amy Wise said...

Thank you Madge!! Lynda...oh my gosh, how are you? I haven't "seen" you in forever! I hope all is well.

The entire list in this post is filled with things that we do as a family each holiday season and throughout the year. Good reminders that eventually become habit.=)

Happy holidays to both of you!!

Much love,

Loved this post. Today I am doing some of the list as I do throughout the year.

Thanks so much! I had to share this one again and this year I added a couple more things to the list. The funny thing is, I shared it on "Giving Tuesday" and didn't even realize it was until I saw some posts about the day on Facebook! Perfect timing!

What do We have to be thankful for this season? When I think of things in my life to be thankful to the Holy Spirit of God for, well I am thankful that my 3 sons are good sons, Never been arrested, never in jail/prison, never in a gang, always dress with their pants pulled up, do Not have a lot of gang or satanic tattoos and thanks to my upbringing by my parents, I taught my sons to have never slapped or hit their girlfriend or wife and they never have. I am thankful to my parents that taught me to Never see race nor skin color in choosing a wife and my sons have followed the same wonderful tradition... In the Holy Bible, it is written "train up a child the way he/she should go and if the child learns and obeys the child will Not depart from those ways." "Let's Keep Interracial Love & Marriages Alive" nkd
