Friends and Family: The Best Gift of All
Presents are pretty wonderful. After all, it's great to get something you really want. And it's fun to give gifts too, especially if you can deliver them in person and see how much the recipient appreciates them. But what really makes a gift special, whether you're getting it or giving it, is the connection you have to the other person.
Giving Round the World
Read these real life stories about how ordinary individuals have made a tremendous difference in the lives of the impoverished.
What YOU Can Do
Small acts of charity, random acts of kindness can brighten up another person's life.
Caring Volunteers Aren't Only in Fiction...
But we do like reading about them in novels. Try one and find yourself inspired to help someone this holiday season.
