Give Back This Holiday Season With These Simple Ideas
Enjoy the joy and excitement of the real meaning of the holiday season by giving back to those in need.
During the holidays, it can be easy to get caught up in all the decorating and shopping. However, taking the time to give back can help to bring more meaning to the holiday season. Share these ideas with your friends and family to start giving back this holiday season.
- Get to know your kitchen – cooking with your kids is one of the best and easiest ways to get them involved in giving back. Bake some cookies or casseroles to hand out at your local fire department or a single parent in your neighborhood. A home cooked dish can go a long way in showing your neighbors how much you care.
- Give stockings to the homeless – head to the dollar store and pick up a few holiday stockings and stuff them with the essentials, such as water, toothpaste, a toothbrush, and gloves. Consider also adding in some holiday treats, such as holiday candy. Keep the stocking in your car and pass them out to any homeless people that you see on your daily commute.
- Adopt a family – many religious groups and local organizations give you the chance to sponsor a local family for the holidays. You can buy gifts for the kids or provide them with the groceries they need to cook a holiday dinner to ensure that everyone has a smile on their face this season.
- Donate toys – chances are your kids have tons of toys that they never play with. Challenge your children to clean out their rooms and collect all their old toys and then donate them to a preschool, shelter, or a local nonprofit. Donating old toys will give them a second life while also helping to brighten someone else’s day.
