Each year we get one of those Salvation Army angels to purchase gifts for. This year we got 2 kids who are similar ages to my own children.
It's amazing to see my kids in Target running around choosing gifts for a chid that they don't even know. It's really gratifying to know that we are raising children who understand the importance of giving back to those who have less than we do.
After we had already purchased the gifts for our "angels" I learned of another family that has had tremendous difficulty over the past few years. I had planned to buy one more gift for one of the members of that family. Instead, I found myself drawn so much to their story that I could not help but buy a gift for each of them. $100 to me means the world to someone else.
I can not believe how happy it has made me and my kids to buy gifts for people we don't even know. It's a way to re-affirm the spirit of the season and importance of giving back.
