Daily Advent Gift: Day 1

Advent brings many different traditions. Some people hide an Elf around the house, some have daily readings, some practice daily acts of kindness. Last year, the boys and I practiced giving by delivering poinsettias throughout town, donating clothes, buying new toys & clothes for those in need. Truthfully, we’ll probably do many of those same things this year. But the year, we’re going to Give More. In lieu of creating Holiday Gift Guides for Non-Profits, my family and I are donating to a non-profit. Every day of advent.

Why?

The more I give, the less I want.

Join me, won’t you? It doesn’t have to be a lot. Keep reading to see what $1 can do…
