PLEASE POST THIS POWERFUL MESSEGE WITH ALL YOUR FRIENDS.
THANK YOU SANTA

THIS IS OUR MISSION STATEMENT
My beloved friends of Santalivenow.ning.com.
As most everyone is aware there are thousands of people in our own respective states of origin that are far less fortunate than you and I and because of that their joy in this most holiest of holidays is diminished.
There are far too many children and adults alike who dread to see the 25th of December come because their hearts want so much to share in the joy of this festive holiday yet their minds will not let them. A variety of reasons may cause this for them. Those that readily come to mind are:
1. Lack of finances or very limited finances;
2. Lack of nourishment or fear of not knowing where the next meal will come from
3. Lack of shelter or permanent shelter
4. Lack of feeling that there is in fact so other living person out there who cares
It makes little difference what the reason is except as to what remedy would help the most. Whatever their reason is - it blemishes what in my opinion should be the most joyous of all days for everyone not just the privileged..
Hence the reason for this post.
My friends, I would ask this holiday season that each and every one of you reach out to someone you know or know of who may be in one of these positions. Donate to one of your local food pantry’s or donate a toy to anyone one of the many charities that collect new toys for those children who would not otherwise have a gift for Christmas- In doing so you give someone a reason to rejoice this holiday season who might not otherwise do so. In doing so you give the greatest gift ever given that of LOVE.
Your act of kindness does not necessarily have to be miraculous to be life changing. For if the truth be known- a miracle- is nothing more than a pleasant event that wasn’t calculated to happen- yet happens anyway! It could be as simple as reaching out and shaking the hand of someone who looks lonely or lost and saying “may the blessings of God be with you today and throughout this holiday season”. It could be that bag of groceries you left at your local food bank or on the doorstep of someone you know who truly needs them; or that toy you donated to Toys for Tots or some other similar organization . What ever kindness it is you chose to do it will only go to prove that there are Angels who walk among us and you have just become one of them!
