The Giving Tree - Take One and Make a Special Christmas

Most shopping centers and lots of other stores, libraries, schools and churches have a giving tree set out each holiday season.  The trees usually contain the name of a child and one of their top Christmas wishes. 

This weekend I was at the Clackamas Town Center and came across their tree.  The tree was FULL.  I guess not many had noticed it yet.  The tags on the tree included names like Jesse, Jamal, Matt, and Abby.  These kids weren't looking for much.  One boy wanted a wallet, another an umbrella, and another a pair of gloves.  It was heartbreaking. 

I was surrounded by kids telling their parents they wanted a shopping spree at Nordstrom's and Aeropostle and Wet Seal and Abercrombie, and hearing, "Can't we just go to Paris for Christmas again?" 

I wanted to take all of the tags off the tree.  But, I left some for you!  Better yet, go to your local giving tree with your children and let them choose the child and maybe even buy the gift with money they earn from you, by doing extra chores.  It's a fantastic way to teach charity and a great time to encourage your kids to be grateful for what they have.

Christmas Tea at Old McDonald's Farm

Old McDonald's Farm is a non-profit, owned by my friend Stephanie and her family.  The farm does tours, summer events, holiday events, science and all kinds of fun with for kids and families with animals and plants! 

  Their mission:  “In facilitating healthy social and emotional development, OMF is committed to providing at-risk protective factors to children through structured, educational experiences using animals, agriculture, gardens and natural resources as educational tools.” We are not necessarily teaching children to be farmers, but rather using a farm to teach wholesome, healthy life lessons. 

They are holding a fund raising tea next Saturday and Sunday.  A fun holiday activity for you and your girlfriends that also helps a good cause.
