Giving Back and Helping Others during the Holiday Season
The holiday season is supposed to be filled with happiness, laughter, and love. However, there are some families that may not have it as good as you. Everyone can use a little bit of kindness and have their holiday spirit lifted up. The holiday season is about giving. Be aware of the needs of those around you. Look for ways to make not only someone else’s holiday more special, but yours by donating time, money, or even gifts. Giving back to those who need it most lets them know they should never give up, to keep pushing because there are people in this world who will help along the way.
I donated to the Ansonia Police Department for "Shop with Santa," which allows families who are less fortunate to go to Target and buy presents to enjoy the holiday like everyone else. It’s a remarkable feeling to have knowing you just made somebody else happy.
The reward of lifting someone up during the holiday is indescribable. Always remember that giving back during the holidays is very beneficial, but giving back all year long is just as meaningful. Encourage friends, family, and loved ones to join you on this ride of helping others.
