As we are speeding towards the “big day” as I like to call it, it is easy to get wrapped up in the planning, purchasing and parties. So I’ve realized that is incredibly important to take a moment to look at those in need during the holidays and see can be done to help make their holiday a little better.
Recently, I heard about the Holiday Food Drive in my community. I’m fortunate that I’ve never had to worry about having food to eat, whether it be during the holidays or any time of the year. I went grocery shopping and got a number of items, filled up a box and delivered it so families in need will have one less thing to worry about. This year, the girls also had the chance to choose toys to donate to the our local Toy Drive. They had a blast choosing items and were really pleased that they could help other kids to have a great holiday! It’s really to think that, as one person, you can’t make a difference. At this time of year, realize that you CAN make a difference in someone else’s life!
Kinder also recognizes the importance of giving back, which is why they are proud to sponsor the ‘A Joy to Share’ program! As proud sponsors of the Children’s Miracle Network, Kinder is giving you an easy way to give back! Simply check out the A Joy To Share video. “Like” the video and, for every like, Kinder will donate $1 to the Children’s Miracle Network. One click can make a difference!
(And, if you’d like to help even more, you can make your own donation to the Children’s Miracle Network)
While you’re sharing the spirit of the holidays with others, don’t forget that you deserve something for yourself too! Personally, I’m a huge fan of Kinder Mini-Eggs. While they are NOT nut-free, I enjoy the hazelnut filling and I can savour them for days (after hiding them from myself of course!).
I’ve also managed to hide some rather large Kinder Holiday Eggs that are hiding until the girls get them — I can’t wait to see their when they see these Eggs on Christmas Day!
Help others, take some time for yourself and, most of all, enjoy the holiday season — after all, it only comes once a year!
