We talk more about giving than receiving over the holiday season. Through Toys For Tots donations, coat drives, adopting a family, sending shoe boxes across the ocean to children in developing countries, planning a family mission trip and donating time at local food shelves to just name a few.
There are so many ways to give back to your community.
Our kids actually ask for very little and I hope it’s because we try to focus more on serving others than we do ourselves.
In the great words of the late Nelson Mandela -
I think the most difficult part for us, and our kids, when it comes to raising money for a cause – whether it’s for a non-profit, for a school need that the budget doesn’t cover, or a sports team or maybe a group of kids from your school is raising money for a mission trip or cultural adventure overseas – it’s asking people to make those donations. I still remember going door to door selling candy bars and cheese and magazine subscriptions to really raise such a small amount of money. It’s not safe, it’s hard to communicate the message, and it’s hard to get people to open their doors!
