Yes, You Can Join in & Make a Difference
Christmas is a time of giving and receiving, but for many children whose families have experienced hardship over the year, their Christmas may not have too many if any gifts under the tree. They may not even have a tree to place them under.

Heartbreaking isn't it? But you can assist!

In a time of the year that is filled with joy, love, family and support, a show of kindness from one family to another can be all it takes to brighten someones entire season.
