How Can You Make A Difference?

Have you been dreaming of a White Christmas?

Well if you live in certain parts of the country, you’re in luck…

Abundant snowfall is making this holiday season one to remember in many parts of the U.S.  The chilly temperatures make it the perfect time to settle in around the fire with a hot drink.

It really is a great time of year… a time for family, friends, and good cheer.  It’s the season to be merry!

It’s also the season for giving…

Giving is a great way to show you care about those around you.  But I’m not talking about presents and the usual holiday gifts.

I’m talking about giving to someone in need.

Whether you donate to a charity, volunteer, or simply perform a random act of kindness… it all helps make the world a better place.

It’s been a great year in the market and lending a helping hand is especially important to those enduring a health scare, like a child battling a life threatening disease.

When a child is diagnosed with a serious disease, it’s a shocking, unforgettable, and troubling experience for the whole family.  And unfortunately, this holiday season finds many families in a health related struggle.

Now’s a great time to lend a helping hand…

One great way to help out is through Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Usually, families have to travel great distances so their children can get the best care possible.  And it doesn’t take long before expenses pile up due to travel, food, and lodging.

Thankfully there’s Ronald McDonald House.

Ronald McDonald House provides housing, meals, and support for families going through a health battle with a child.  Their assistance allows families to stay together at little or no cost.  And staying together means all the difference in the world to a sick child.

The great deeds this organization accomplishes are made in part by donations and volunteer work.

Here’s a link to their website where you can make a donation…www.rmhc.org.

It doesn’t matter how much you can afford to give… every little bit helps.  Your generosity goes a long way in making a family of an ill child’s life a little better this holiday season.

During this season of giving, make sure you find some time to give back…

Giving not only makes someone else feel better, but it makes you feel darn good at the same time.

Again we’ve all been blessed with a nice run in the stock market… maybe it makes sense to take a little of that and help someone in need!
