With “Black Friday” officially kicking off the holiday shopping season, I am reminded of the importance of gift giving. A gift is from the heart and symbolizes care, appreciation, respect and love for one another. The spirit of holiday cheer seems to fill us with thoughts of charity, goodwill and rekindles our love for mankind.
This year, the American Red Cross will continue its holiday giving campaign. The campaign features an online holiday giving catalog “Gifts that Save the Day”, which enables people to make a tax deductible ,charitable gift this holiday season. If you’re drawn to the military, you can support our troops by purchasing a military comfort kit. If victims of disaster interest you, purchasing a month of basic necessities for a family who lost everything would help tremendously. I believe that there is nothing more important than good wholesome nourishment, so I plan on purchasing hot meals for victims of disaster. With over twenty gift ideas you’re sure to find a gift that symbolizes your appreciation, care, respect and love for someone this holiday season.
