@MichiganGirl24:  I foster with a no-kill cat rescue in the area and they do a Christmas fundraiser where volunteers wrap presents for shoppers at the mall for a donation – I’m really excited to take part in that this year!  Seeing as I donate a lot to them throughout the year it’s nice to be able to volunteer TIME instead of more money….

We also normally grab something off the “angel tree” to make a donation and pay $20-30 when those Salvation Army donation cards come in the mail to pay for x amount of peoples Thanksgiving meals.

One year I did the Operation Christmas Child, that was really cool if anyone is interested:

I just went through mine and my daughters closets to donate gently used clothing and shoes to a few poor communities.  My mil’s friend does this… she collect the clothes and then rents a van to bring it to the communities.

This year, dh’s job is doing something.  He is buying Christmad gifts for a 5 year old boy and 6 year old girl… boy wans a car, girl wants a doll.

Our department at work does fundraisers all year long. Then, at Christmas, we “adopt” a family or two or three, from the local Childrens Hospital to provide them with gifts (and a gfit card to grocery store) for the holidays. We shop, wrap and deliver. It is a very heartwarming and humbling experience.

@MichiganGirl24:  We give, and I give at work!

I just helped supply a family with an entire Thanksgiving Dinner.

We also adopted an angel, so I’ll be doing some clothes shopping for a 12 year old, FUN!  I love to shop!!
