Merry Christmas to You!!

I hope you are having a wonderfully joyous day, whether you celebrate the Christmas holiday or not.... For me in a nutshell, celebrating Christmas is the time of year spent with family bonding together for the day, which includes exchanging and opening gifts around the Christmas tree, eating and enjoying a scrumptious holiday meal with pies, cookies, candy, or other sweets for dessert. Plus, engaging in other activities, which may include a beach walk, games, etc.

In the spirit of the Christmas holiday, I'm reminded of the tradition to give to those in need. I've donated to many worthy causes over the years. This holiday season however, I chose to donate to DonorsChoose.Org. The following quote about Donors Choose comes directly from the DonorsChoose.Org website: is an online charity that makes it easy for anyone to help students in need. Public school teachers from every corner of America post classroom project requests on our site, and you can give any amount to the project that most inspires you. 
I believe in educating and enriching the lives of children to the fullest extent possible. Children are our future... A proper education helps children become our next leaders, doctors, nurses, teachers, scientists... Or whatever they choose to become. Children need to have access to all the necessary educational tools possible to succeed in life and compete in today's fast pace world. 

I chose to help fund a classroom project through DonorsChoose.Org. I believe reading and literacy are important tools that help children succeed in any subject matter. Children have to be able to not only read, but comprehend what they are reading to succeed. The project I helped to fund, will enable a social studies teacher to buy much needed books to help her students better understand a particular topic in American history.

I've donated to in the past and other educational organizations and will continue to do so in the future.

Have a wonderful day celebrating the Christmas holiday! Did you donate to a charitable organization this holiday season?
