Kindness Bandit: Angel Tree
Well, we are officially within a month of Christmas. I am excited to give. I love giving presents, especially when they are meaningful, handmade and from the heart. The only other type of giving that gets me more excited is the anonymous type. For some reason opportunities to give really seem to pop up this time of year. Every store has a tree with names of people in need, donation boxes sit in plain view, people are bell ringing and there is an abundance of opportunity to give. I wish such opportunities were more obvious/available year round. Seems like around January 1st those chances to give become less apparent and are relegated to counter-top donation jars and money request mailers.
So, I decided to grab two angel tree gifts tags again this year (read last year). I picked one and had Cordelia grab another. This year we are giving gifts to a 6 year old girl and a 10 year old boy. The presents will be given to the children as gifts from their incarcerated parents. I love that!
I am looking for some more seasonal Kindness Bandit ideas...have any?
