Just learned about a great Christmas charity that makes low income kids smile on Christmas morning. You can actually adopt a real child’s letter to Santa, and send your gifts directly to the child, with no charity involved. These kids’ Santa lists often include items like “new shoes” or “a warm coat”. Go to to learn where and when. You’ll catch the real spirit of Christmas, and put help smiles on needy kids’ faces on Christmas morning. Share this post!
