Christmas is in the air! People are bustling from shop to shop seeking out gifts for friends and family, wondering what gift would be the perfect one. In years past, the newest piece of electronic equipment or the coolest new toy were the must-have items to get your hands on. This season, however, people are being a bit more conservative with their gift giving. Instead of giving wild and ostentatious gifts this year, many people are turning to alternative presents.
This year let us not forget the spirit of giving and additionally, charitable giving. As a different choice this season, try to think of a charity that means something to you or to the ones you love. Research the charity online and check its website for a donations link (most will have one), or call to make a contribution in the name of the person on your gift list. Not only will such a gift warm the heart of the person you’ve honored, but it will also help those less fortunate or contributes to further research for an important cause.
This season the Curtain Up Events team will be giving as well.
Danielle will be giving to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society in honor of her Mother. (nationalmssociety.org)
Meredith has chosen to give to the National Breast Cancer Foundation in honor of her Aunt Holly. (nationalbreastcancer.org)
Lastly, Kiki has decided to donate to HOPE International in honor of her relatives and victims of the natural disasters that occurred in Indonesia. (hopeww.org).
Remember, make your giving this season twice as nice by giving charitably!
