A lot of people are in need, you as the reader might be having a wonderful Christmas time with your family, delicious dishes on the dining table, mountains of presents under the Christmas Tree.
However, there are still plenty of families who will not have this experience this holiday season. Many children go without presents and the families go hungry. These people want to have a great holiday season but don‘t have the money or resources to do so.
Consider donating this season to help out others and spread holiday spirit. If you donate and help out these family with anything you want to donate imagine how happier their holiday would be.
If you don’t know where to donate these generous gifts here is a short list of non-profit organizations Make a Wish, Toys for Tots, Build a Shoebox, Salvation Army. The Make a Wish organization helps children with critical illness to make their wish come true.
Even donating a little amount of money will help a child with illness make their wish come true. Toys for Tots is ran by the United States Marine Corps Reserve. Toys for Tots distributes toys to houses which parents can‘t afford presents for their children.
The third option Build a Shoebox is a operation where you would fill a shoebox with anything for example books, toys, school tools, chips. donate it to the organization and the organization would give it to a family. Imagine how excited the children are going to be when they open their shoebox and see what is inside.
Last but not least Salvation Army is one of the biggest non-profit donation groups. They are a Christian Church which varies from soldiers, officers, doctors, to regular citizens. They help all kind of people in need with the donation they get.
With 1.7 million members in this organization the Salvationists try to help people in need. All these organizations have one thing in common and that is to help people of all kinds in need.
So if you want to brighten a family, child, or any person in need please donate to any of these organizations. With the smallest of donations you could make a big impact of making a family closer and being happy for this holiday season. Not only will it impact the people that get the donation but it will impact you as a person you can make a impact. It’s so easy to spread joy to so many people.
