in the past years i’ve become obsessed with advent calendars. i like counting down to things and little gifts so how couldn’t i love them? i’m in the process of putting together six advents this year for christmas! (as gifts for people) i’m being generous with these because i’m trying to do lots of random acts of kindness this holiday season. (Random Acts Of Kindness Christmas RAOKC? ok, maybe the acronym won’t work..hah)
while i’m on the subject of christmas, i’m taking part in the angel giving tree this year! “The annual Christmas gift drive provides toys, clothing, special-needs gifts, or other wish list items to kids and senior citizens experiencing financial hardship.”
i saw a commercial the other day and was really excited about the project so i “adopted” a four year old from this little area in ohio. there aren’t photos or names. just the age, location and what they need and want. you pick the location/age of the person you want to adopt, buy whatever presents you’d like, then mail or drop off the gifts at the nearest salvation army! i strongly recommend you do this if you feel inclined. i’m already finished buying my presents. i love this kind of thing! read more about it here.
