Helping Others at Christmas Time

Every year the girls' school has collection boxes in all the classrooms that are collected along with many other local schools and businesses and the goods put together into hampers and delivered to the less fortunate for Christmas.
So today, the girls wanted to go shopping for their donations. They chose a toy or two each, some makeup for a teenager as that is what they are always short of, some Impulse and Kate chose new toothbrushes and toothpastes for kids and adults. Ella decided this was a great idea.
In the past Amie & I have volunteered our time after all the goods are collected and we sort them into hampers for families. It's a lovely way of helping out others. and the girls' really love taking part.

What a wonderful idea. I always plan to take gifts to the giving trees at shopping centers but never get around to it.
