Family Giving Ideas: How to Embrace the Giving Spirit All December Long

Each December growing up, my parents would identify families in need. They'd involve me and my siblings in activities to help shift the focus from our own Christmas lists to those who were in greater need. Some of the most memorable holidays I experienced were ones where we did fun activities that truly made a difference in the lives of others. In fact, looking back, I can tell you all the details of many of those family giving ideas my parents had us help with. But if you were to ask me about any gifts I received those same years, I wouldn't be able to give you any information.
