  • ALWAYS. No matter how rough we think we have it, there's always someone out there that has it worse. I like my children to see that giving to those less fortunate than us makes you AND the other person feel good. It's sooo important.

  • Unless it's in a church around here, we normally don't see Angel Trees... but we give to the local food pantry, my dh is taking some food this week to work to give to the local minster there for their pantry and we give to local toy collections...
    Next yr my dh is going to head up our local FD (for the first time being done here) GoodFellows and us wives are going to make the baskets to give to our local families in need...
    I am so looking forward to this project....

  • Yes, we always give toys to kids who don't have enough- my kids' schools encourage this and they get very involved in it. My dd especially this year was very insistant that we give toys to kids who didn't have much. We also donate to food banks around this time every year- my seven your old is always reminding me to give to his school's food donation box under the tree in the lobby.

  • I used to but my finances don't allow it. As soon as we are able we will again.
