The Giving Tree

When you go to Walmart, don't forget to throw a little change in the red bucket~you know, the one next to the guy ringing the bell. Say hello to the greeter and grab a name of a child off the Christmas tree. That is if you haven't been hit by hard times as well.

Today Twin and I picked a 4 year old little girl. We were able to purchase a toy, outfit, tennis shoes, underwear, socks and some candy all for just $40.00. You don't have to spend that much but after the toy we knew we wanted her to have a warm pair of shoes, then came the outfit and of course you want clean underwear and socks...We are both so thankful that our children have never had to have their names on a tree and we have never had to experience the pain of not being able to provide for our familes. It must be heartbreaking for parents who don't know how they are going to explain to a child why Santa didn't bring them much~ if anything. We had so much fun! So if you can, please don't pass up your opportunity to help.
