It’s truly a winter wonderland every year during the holiday season with all the festive decorations, exchanging of gifts, and holiday feasts! Many of us get caught up in the daily hustle of the season, feasting and celebrating, that we may forget about so many struggling families in the world who can barely put food on the table, give holiday gifts, or host festive parties. Christmas is all about providing warmth, love, and hope for all families so that they may share in our good fortune and joy. This holiday season is a great time to begin thinking about helping our neighbors in need around the world. There are a variety of charities and nonprofit organizations readily available to help do their best to give aid to those who are experiencing financial woes and the stress of the season, but they need your assistance, too.
