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.

My kids always have a home made gift for the grandparents...shirts with hand prints and date, aprons, a wooden plaque, etc. It's been neat to watch how the *quality* of the gifts have increased, as the kids have grown and their skills and talents are used.

1. Things like helping people with medical bills, groceries, tuition/books, transportation.

2. I can't think of any traditions in my family, but I want to do a "Twelve Days of Service" theme at Christmastime, where every day for 12 days we do something nice for someone else (clean, cook, rake leaves, run errands, babysit, etc).
