Our workplace likes to raise money and adopt a couple of families for Christmas. We work with a local SOS shelter to find families in need. One of the things we do to get money donations is we put raffle items together and sell tickets to win the prizes. We have some really nice items to bid on. I of course have made and donated a blanket for the raffle table.
The other thing I do every year is find my son's name on a Christmas tree and buy for that child with my son in mind. It makes me feel good to give to a Joshua every year. This year I decided since I had the foot surgery that I might not find his name so I took one of the adopt a family kids (a 13yr old boy) and I bought him clothes as another donation to our family. I had my granddaughter help me with picking things out since she will be 13 in January and as she said "knows what boys that age wear". I find it also teaches her about giving to others. The buying has also put holiday spirit in gear.
Since I like to share my blankets with you I have attached a photo.
I hope you are all getting into that holiday spirit!
