It Is More Fun To Give

Yesterday schools were closed and my Mom came over to do a community service project with my kids.  The objective is to fill a shoebox with goodies for an underpriviliged child.  My youngest daughter and mom went to the dollar store to pick up some fun things.  I knew that we had some things around the house as well so I decided to get involved in that action.  The amount of joy I got finding brand new, nice things that someone else would appreciate was amazing.  You really get into it.

Charity Gift Boxes 11-2-10

They made three boxes and I was so excited to contribute to some of them.  We had some clothes with tags still on them that were for an older child.  A few little girls purses with tags still on.  A  new shirt and skirt, a MAC cosmetic case, some Incoco nail polish adhesives (liquids weren't allowed), a ring, 2 pairs of earrings, candy, and some other personal items.  Woo hoo.  These are things that I would have kept but goodness if haven't used them by now I think they deserve a better home.

It is so fun to give and the girls really enjoyed it too.

  1. Wow, that sounds like such a great project! I'm glad you were able to help some people in need, while getting rid of unneeded items that were taking up space in your house. I'm sure the girls who get those boxes will love them too.
