Since I’ve been an “adult” and able to sustain on more than Raman, I’ve enjoyed adopting an angel from the Angel Tree every year. Its a nice way to give back to someone who might not otherwise have a Christmas morning. And because you are actually handling the shopping yourself, you are able to make sure they are well-stocked with clothing and of course have a few toys to enjoy on Christmas morning.
This year, I had a bit of trouble locating an actual Angel Tree to take an angel and shop for. Granted, most of the time I am able to find these easily in suburban malls…but if you’ve ever been to NYC, you know that those are not really readily accessible. So a few weeks ago when I started my search, I started to panic a bit because it was not as easy as I thought.
This is an amazing and VERY EASY way to help out this season. You can do all of your shopping online, in just a few minutes. Information on your Angel is readily available, and they will ship it (FOR FREE) directly to a local Salvation Army near you (be sure to include your Angel’s ID so that all your gifts get to the correct child). AND, they even give you a promo code to receive a discount.
If you have 10 free minutes, and anything to spare this holiday season, check it out and please give someone a happy Christmas morning if you can. I grew up with many blessed, exciting and warm/cozy holiday mornings, and what a great thing to share that with just one child if we can.
Happy Christmakkuh all!
