7 Days till Christmas – spreading love by volunteering
My husband and I wanted to volunteer our time this holiday season to help those who are less fortunate.
In Santa Monica, there is a wonderful organization called One Voice LA. They help families at poverty level within our local communities. Every year they do a Holiday Food Program. Children receive toys and books and adults receive an overflowing basket of food. Tonight, my husband and I were two of the many volunteers it takes to make this happen. Along with people of all ages and cultures, we filled boxes full of food and then helped load them onto trucks. People from all walks of life, varying in ages and races, got to work tonight.
This is a four-day event and there are two more days left. Perhaps if you are in the area, you might consider volunteering as well. Information can be found here.
A beautiful part of humanity is the fact that we are all in this together.
The older I get, the more I realize, the holiday spirit is one of family, gratitude and philanthropy.
“No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”
Spread the love. #spreadthelove
