Give Gifts to Those in Need

I was listening to the radio this morning and the local dj’s said that this year instead of buying their co-workers gifts, they were going to use the money for gifts and give to a family in need. If you are wondering what to get your mom or aunt Mildred this holiday season, why not make a donation to a charity of their choice. Or why not ask your family or co-workers to donate gifts instead of giving gifts to each other. So this year give to a charity and help out others who need it this Christmas.
