I was chatting with a friend on Face book and she gave me a great idea for Christmas gifts and I challenged those who are on Facebook to do the same. Instead of buying Christmas presents, I will be spending that money to contribute to our Food Bank. Not having a lot of money, I generally spend about $200.00 for gifts, so today, while at Fresh Co, as they have bags for the food bank, I bought $200.00 worth to put in their Food Bank bin. To those that I buy gifts for, I sent them a little note that their Christmas gift was made on their behalf to the Kingston Food Bank.
I've gotten messages about keeping Christ in Christmas, which I always do, but I can't think of anything better than helping those who are less fortunate than most of us. Having said that, I also challenge you to do the same. I know that very few of you, if any, live next door to a homeless shelter, so maybe I'm just more aware of the poor in our society.
All the best,
