A little bit of charity can make a huge difference in somebody’s life…
One thing I want my Blogmas series to be is honest. So, to be honest, I originally wrote this blog to talk about a concert my friend and I were hosting at work to get money for Toys for Tots, but due to some unforeseen circumstances, we canceled it. However, I don’t think canceling a concert is a good enough reason to not give to Toys for Tots.
I also think I caught the charity bug because I’m looking for every little thing I could possibly do to give whatever I can this. I think it is because this year has been filled with so much pain and negativity, I feel like I have to give back.
So far, I have helped gather a few donations from friends to give to Toys for Tots, wrote 2 letters for the Macy’s believe campaign (which you can also do here) because I think it is a super simple way to give and spread joy even if you don’t have the money to do so yourself!
I’ve also been looking into some companies that sell goods in which all or a portion of proceeds go to causes. Here is a list of some ones I’ve found that I plan to check out myself! I think it would be a really cute gift idea to give someone a gift that gives back because it’s double the giving and the recipient of your gift also gets to feel as though they contributed to giving back and raising awareness!
I know this is my second post about giving this season, but I really want to drive the point home that giving is something that could do so much for the world we live in!
What are you doing to give back this holiday season?!
