A Giving Christmas: Giving Big on a Budget Through Donations & Giving of Your Time

A Giving Christmas: Giving Big On A Budget


There are many ways to give this Christmas that do not require you to spend a dime. Consider the things you can give like your old or un-used clothes, the extra toys, and your time! This time of year is a great time to clean out the toys, closets and even the garage to make room for more things. I think donating items and time can often mean the most to people!
