The gift of giving
Every year, my family is fortunate to celebrate wonderful events like birthdays and Christmas. The amount of presents we receive from family and friends is very generous. As a result, it has slowly become a tradition to donate some of the unopened gifts to Toys for Tots during the holidays. Of course, we have fun going shopping to add to our donation pile. The lesson of paying it forward is invaluable for teaching my children the small things they can do to give back to the community.
