December: Day 11

As Christmas is soon approaching (only 13 more days! OMG!), we’re all rushing to get that gorgeous dress or drool-worthy suit and tie, to getting presents for our loved ones. Can you believe I haven’t even started?!

Yes, we spend more money during this time of the year compared to any other time. However, let’s not forget those that don’t have the luxury of buying or receiving gifts. Think of the poor orphaned children. Think of the homeless. Think of the victims of violence, sex trafficking, natural disasters. Think of all those disadvantaged.

Honestly, I’m one of those who stress out about my Christmas budget as the list of loved ones keeps growing year by year. Not to mention, if there’s birthdays during the month too. Yes, we all want to gift something. Be remembered. Show someone we care. But there’s really no need for extravagant gifts. Why not donate money to charities under your loved ones’ names? Or buy items from stores that give the earnings to those charities? Or simply organize a small outing to an independent organization to spend time with them? Everybody needs love.

Day 11: Money is not everything. Give the gift of time and love.

Be kind to one another 🙂
