It's easy to get caught up in the rush of the season and left giving, true giving, go by the wayside. In order to make sure that giving is at the top of our priorities (and our children's) we always like to set down and make a list of things we would like to give to each year and how much. Last year our goal was to break $1000 worth of giving at Christmas and I know we excitedly exceeded that goal!!!! There's nothing more fun than buying toys for children, a goat and some chickens for a needy family, or buying clothes and shoes for a battered woman!!
If you are looking for some fun ways to give, here are some charities that we enjoy giving too!
Samaritan's Purse - Operation Christmas Child
Dayspring Villa Women and Children's Shelter (OK)
Angel Tree (Prison Fellowship)
Salvation Army Angel Tree (Mall)
Pregnancy Resource Center of Owasso (OK)
Homeless Bags!! (A creation of our own, see tomorrow's post!!!)
