As we know, Christmas is not just about receiving gifts but can also be about donating gifts to people who may be less fortunate than ourselves.
As highlighted on our Facebook page we recently packed a big box full of toys that we sent off to the Salvation Army.
Each year the Salvation Army runs the Christmas Appeal for families who are struggling to make ends meet. As stated on their website there are 25,000 Australian families that are homeless. This is a staggering figure but it also highlights the plight many families find themselves in and often through no fault of their own. Also, take the time to read about the stories that some families have faced and the hardships they have endured.
As you do your Christmas shopping consider buying an extra gift that you can donate although there are also other ways you can make a contribution. Have a look at the Salvation Army website for more details and information on the different ways you can donate and help out those who are less fortunate.
