santahat Will You Help A Child, or Family This Christmas?

Here at our local stores you can buy stuff that will be delivered to the shelter for battered woman & there children, they do this at the $1.00 store so you can really buy alot of things for them & not really go to broke. next week-end I'll be going to do my shopping to help them .

I was just wondering if others do anything like this .

My husbands work sponsors about 80 foster kids in the area. He made the decision to make Christmas a happy one for one little girl. We had a ball shopping for her. I think we will do it again next year.

My husband and I have bought a gift for the little girl next door. She's only 5 years old, and lives with her grandmother, father, and aunt. They moved in not too long ago, and I know they don't have it easy. Since my husband and I have grown quite fond of the little one, we wanted to buy her a nice gift. WE don't consider them a "needy family", but the little girl's mother isn't in her life, and thats so sad.

star was talking with my kids

we live in a town house complex so this year my son is making a tape of sleigh bells ringing and Santa saying ho-ho-ho! and late on Christmas eve he is going to walk around the neighbourhood playing the tape (while trying to stay out of sight!) While he does this, me and my daughter are going to hang a bag of cookies and a card on every ones door knobs. We went to the dollar store to pick up small bags to use and are hand making the cards.
It is going to be so much fun!
