WO: Weekly Obsessions
This week, my obsessions are simple. Consider it my holiday gift to you.
As most of us are spending time with our families this coming weekend, and our homes are filled with wonder and cheer, consider those whose holiday season will not be so merry or bright.
Donate what you’re able — whether it be clothing, food, time or money — to a cause you can support.
From a young family who just lost their home in a fire to those who’ve not had a home at all, there are plenty of people in need of holiday charity.
Helping those in need is something we should be mindful of year-round, but it often gets lost in our own priorities and needs. Take some time this week to consider those causes which you can support, and commit yourself to lending a hand.
Great post! The Estefans/Fuinos/Fatkins (wow, that’s a moutful!) decided to “adopt” a less fortunate family for Christmas this year instead of buying each other presents. This was probably the most rewarding thing I’ve ever done. We all agreed that this will be a new family tradition. Nothing warms my heart more than seeing a child light up on Christmas. ❤
What a wonderful idea, Lauren. That tradition will be one you’ll pass on to your own children, and you can rest assured knowing that you’re bringing some warmth to an otherwise cold season for these families. God bless, and have a very merry Christmas!
Well said – charity should be all year long! Great links for many different causes. Happy that my sorority donated 12 bags/boxes of clothing and 5 boxes of food to local charities in the Daytona area.
You taught us well to consider others and the situations they’re often thrown into — thanks for your constant support of those who know the difference between “want” and “need.”
