I was reading about the Kansas City Secret Santa today and thought how much fun that would be. It made me start thinking what I would do if I had 40k to spare. So here are some questions.

1. If you had unlimited amounts of money, what type of Random Acts of Kindness would you do? At Christmas or otherwise.

2.

I always thought a Random Act to be just that, random.

I heard on our local news recently that in our area, only 80% of the Angel Tree ornaments that are picked up actually end up with gifts.

Thanks. They are all young (none in school yet). They still really do love everything they receive. My 3-year-old is really funny. Even if you give him clothes, he will insist on putting them on right then and there, to the point of stripping down to his underwear immediately to put them on.

I am thinking that is more of an economic thing. Many people are struggling with paying their bills and having a nice holiday for their own family that they can't afford to help others at this time.

Those are some awesome ideas! The homeless camp and having the kids work in the soup kitchen. I may borrow that one when my kids are older.

DS is at the perfect age right now. But it would be a struggle this time of year to find someone to watch DD for us, so I'm just going to wait.
