Charity has been a part of Christmas for centuries, but many credit the writing of Charles Dickens, (especially "A Christmas Carol") for increasing public awareness and interest in Christmas charity. There are any different ways to show kindness during the holiday season.
*Be cheerful to strangers - they will notice
*Give up your place in a line to someone who looks like she needs it
*Participate in any or all of the community efforts around you.
The mitten tree at school
The food drive at church
The Angel tree at the mall
*Clean out your closets and let the kids clean out their toy boxes. Donate to the Salvation Army
The options are endless and easy to find. ~ T.J. Mills
