Most of us are looking forward to the festivities of Christmas. It is much anticipated and we all gear up for the merrymakings it can bring. It is the usual scenario for ordinary people who are given the chance to live a comfortable life without the need to depend to other people. However, it is the opposite for those who are living or depending their existence to the helping hands of concerned people.
We can make a difference for them this Christmas. We can try to raise money and give them some gifts out of ordinary. There is no little or big amount; what is important is how you help other people in any way you can.
In trying to help the organization you are supporting, maybe you can start by selling your old clothes and stuff to raise some money. Gather all the things that you no longer use and you are able to let go. You may also encourage your friends to do the same. The more you can get to participate in your endeavor, the more you can collect for the charity you are supporting. While you have your friends’ cooperation, encourage them to make a personalized letter from Santa that you can distribute to the children at the charity.
You can try selling home made cookies and other products that are in demand especially during Christmas season. You will be spending some money for the ingredients in baking goodies, but you will be rewarded in some ways. The smile in your recipient’s eyes is enough to compensate for your expense and efforts.
Online campaign can also help in raising money for a particular cause. You can put the story of the people behind the cause you are supporting. Including some pictures will also help in verifying the veracity of your campaign. Also, do not forget to put the location and contact number of the particular institution that you are trying to help, for the information of people who are interested to help. And anyone on the area may extend their help by going to the place itself, rather than donating online. Either way, you are reaching out to people who have the heart to share their blessings.
You can also make money by making handmade Christmas cards. Do not forget to make personalized Santa letter as well. It can be included in your crafts for sale or be allocated to some special person at the charity institution you are helping. You may probably sell more, by mentioning that the proceeds of your effort will go to the less fortunate.
Helping other people can probably give joy and satisfaction more than any material gifts that you can receive. Real happiness is selfless but instead it is found within. You can feel the contentment and blessing knowing that you made the effort to help others who are in need. Christmas is not all about receiving, it is more of how you share the blessings you have received to people who need them most.
