The 12 Ways Of Christmas…
#9 – It’s Far Better To Give Than To Receive
Planning Charitable Giving
When putting together my Christmas budget I now make an allowance for charitable giving.
I consider how much am I setting aside and where would I, or the family, would like to direct the funds.
There are lots of organisations who specialise in festive or seasonal activities: Food banks Toy banks Clothes Care boxes or packages Churches and charities
Not everybody can afford to give money so we can consider what else we give. Our time is a precious gift that we can give.
In the midst of all the busyness, taking time to reach out to people who either need assistance or company is a lovely way of giving of yourself. It’s also worth noting that you don’t need to look far to find those people. They may indeed be in your own family or street.
Have a wonderful Christmas,
