>This is the time of year where consumerism is on the rise. We all want to give the perfect gift to everyone we know. I know I am guilty.
However I also know that these are not the best times for all. Those without jobs are on the rise as well as those without a home. The weather is changing from nice and sunny to very cold. I live in Southern California so I can only imagine how cold it gets elsewhere.
Instead of only thinking about my friends and family I plan on giving back. We have done toys for tots, but I want new ideas.
A friend is making fleece blankets for the homeless. I think I may take this idea as well. Chick 2 would love to help me.
Chick 2’s school sent home a list of things to collect so they can send it to troops overseas. This is something we also will do.
What are things you do during the holiday season? Please share, because I would love new ideas!
