Giving back for the Holidays!

This is the time of year when stress can take over our lives!  From planning and attending holiday parties to standing in long lines for that one perfect gift -- it seems like the season of giving becomes the season of “oh just get me through it!”  

But if we really think about what this season is about -- that dreaded stress should really turn into pure joy and gratitude.  This is the season for giving and nothing makes us feel better than giving back to our family and those in need.

There are so many ways you can make a difference in someone’s life and it doesn’t have to cost any money. Sometimes doing something nice for someone is enough to make you and them feel good.  

Giving Back

Here are some ways you can give back this holiday season;

  • Run an errand for someone

  • Call an old friend to say hello

  • Give someone an extra generous tip

  • Pay off someone’s layaway

  • Buy the person behind you in line a cup of coffee

  • Leave a note to cheer someone up
