Children In Crisis Areas
The world is a large place and we are too small but even then we can make a difference in somebody’s life from miles away! There are many charity fund raisers who aim to help people across the globe in times of calamities. There may be little kids out there with no joy and barely any basic amenities. They need you and you can do your bit in bringing smiles to them. Just get in touch with such agencies and donate toys, clothes, baby essentials to them. Your love for those kids will travel in small packages to that area and bring joy to the tormented souls!
Answer A Letter To Santa
Many children write letters to Santa and drop them at the postbox. You can volunteer at the post office, select such letters and reply to the kids. Many a times these kids are in real need of help and your little effort might help them a great deal. You could even buy them gifts as suggested in their letter and get it dropped to them. In case you know someone around your house who needs help in the form of Santa, pitch in. He might have left a letter in a sock, get it and answer his wishes to make him happy!
You’ve seen kids sleeping on the streets? Those little homeless kids need your care more than anyone else. When they have to go through a lot of struggle to make ends meet, how can they plan a celebration? They are also little kids who have dreams and wishes which are restricted by the limited finances they have. Why not buy a small present for them and drop it near their blanket at night? You can only imagine their face when they wake up to a gift on Christmas morning!
