Make a Difference This Christmas & Be the Change You Want to See in the World by Ash Benton
Every year around the holidays, we get extra excited because we are giving and receiving. Gifts, food, great company, exciting holiday parties, Christmas movies and more are all a part of our wonderful celebrations. But what about the forgotten community? The under-served community? The homeless? The hungry?
Let’s take a moment to put ourselves in their shoes. How would you feel if you had no one to spend Christmas with, no one to give you a gift, no money to purchase a gift, no family, no home, nowhere to go and nowhere to belong? While all alone, you are watching the laughter of others as they shop, eat good food and be merry. This story is not at all to make you feel guilty of your success or celebrations; it’s to help you feel more generous at this time of year and to bless one or more people with Christmas cheer!
Remember that every person counts, and that one person you share a gift with could be the person’s life you change. So go ahead ... be the change!
