Volunteering

Another day, another topic. Have you been to the Christmas of Dreams party yet?


Do you volunteer during the Holidays? What organizations do you donate your time to? How do you teach your children the true meaning of the holidays?



I don't volunteer. I would like too, but most years it is not an option. We do get an angel off the tree at the mall and purchase gifts for them. The girls get to help pick out the gifts and we explain to them that not everyone is fortunate enough to have toys of their own. We also always try to donate to the bell ringers when we can.

I do hope that some time in the future I am able to donate more time to some of the great causes.
