Christmas is my absolute favorite season of the year. Thinking about it makes my heart happy. I love the enchanting music that makes me childlike giddy and spending time with my family enjoying the side-splitting, cry-your-eyes-out hilarity we always get into whenever we’re all together.
I especially love the smell of my favorite delicious dishes simmering in the kitchen. It may not be chestnuts roasting on an open fire, but collard greens, mac and cheese, ham and cornbread dressing with giblet gravy is enough to make this girl lift her hands up and scream…OH YEAH!!! It’s a super magical, super special time.
But I shouldn’t be surprised. The season that we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ should be this way. Full of light, laughter, fun and celebration!
However, society is doing it’s best to commercialize this sacred holiday season and make it something selfish, self-centered and filled with greed.
But, oh no! We’re not going out like that! This year we’re declaring the entire month of December a time for a Ho Ho Ho Lotta Giving!
That’s right! We’re rounding up an army of GIVERS who will help us dedicate this month to helping, loving and giving to others. And we’d like to invite you to be a part.
Instead of holding our hands out waiting to receive, this year we’re extending our hands READY TO GIVE!
Below we’ve listed 31 suggested ways you can join us in our Ho Ho Ho Lotta Giving Challenge. They are super simple ways to show love, concern and generosity. Most are free and the others are really inexpensive.
There is one giving suggestion for each day of December. Place this list on your refrigerator, bathroom mirror, or make it the wallpaper image on your computer desktop.
Either way, place it is somewhere you’ll see it everyday.
If you happen to forget a challenge, don’t worry. I’ll post them on my Facebook page every morning so we can all give together. If you haven’t joined my Facebook community, click HERE so you’ll get the daily challenge reminders.
At the end of every day, we’ll do a Virtual GIVING CELEBRATION, so don’t forget to visit the page daily to join in the fun.
I’m also doing a GIVEAWAY. Yippeeeeeee!!!!
The people that participate the most in the 31-Day Challenge will be entered into a drawing for a $50 Gift Card! (This will help the GIVING keep on giving !! =)
I’ll also pop in every now and then to give away a few spontaneous GIFTS…just because. So be sure to post your success and fun everyday so you’ll be eligible for the drawing at the end of the month.
Life Dare: We’re really trying to make a GIVING impact with this challenge, so please SHARE this post, TWEET this post, and PIN this post to EVERYONE you know.
‘Tis the season to give. ‘Tis the season to share. ‘Tis the season to love. Let’s ROCK OUT this GIVING challenge and share God’s light and love with the world today!
