Spread the #Holiday Cheer: Share What You Can!

For some, Christmas is the happiest time of the year; families and friends come together, have dinners/parties and exchange gifts. But for other's it's like any other day, a struggle, a worry, a doubt. What will they eat, how long will they live, where will they sleep, how will they tell their child Santa "forgot" their present...?

This Holiday season, why not try to go the extra mile to share with those whom need it mostHere are some ideas:
1+3: Thermal socks and winter coats to a homeless shelter, women/men's shelter. 
2: Canned goods to a homeless shelter or food bank. Make sure they are not expired!
4: New toy(s) to a family in need. There are usually hampers collecting new toys for families in need at school and community centers.

1: Soup Kitchen. Help prep/serve food on Christmas Day.
2: Hospital Ward. Visit those who were forgotten. Read Christmas stories or simply converse. Call your local hospital and ask how you can help!
3: Animal Shelter. Help feed, clean and play with abandoned and/or abused animals.

It's important to stop in the midst of the Holiday Buzz to count the blessings; love, family, friendships, food, health, a home and so on...

Promise me you'll spread the holiday cheer by sharing what you can?


  1. This is why it hurts me to see this season commercialized so much. Because I know there are hundreds of thousands of kids out there, who will get nothing. I agree we have to help and support the places that are helping so many people out. And above all, we have to be thankful for what we have, because even if it's not as much as we are used to having as is in my case, it is still so much more than what others have. Great post Nina, I will share it.

  2. Great post! It's nice to see reminders out there that it's not just about shopping and crazy deals but about sharing what you have with others. You are dope for this!

  3. Loving this post as well. Will share!

  4. Thank you for the reminder, Nina. As sad as it sounds we all don't think about this enough. I used to volunteer at food shelter, I ultimately stopped, with issues of my own. But I need to make it a priority to always realize someone is worse off than I am, any help is better than no help.


  5. We tend to forget about those who don't have enough during the holidays. I know I am guilty of that especially due to the hustle and bustle of city living and holiday shopping. Thank you for the reminder!

  6. Love this! Thanks Nina for the inspiration!

  7. It is important to share the blessings eith others.

  8. I agree!! What a great way to give back which is so important!

  9. Easy to get caught up in the material, and it's easy to share too. Thanks for the reminder and suggestions.


Thanks for leaving the positive vibes! Many besos,bendiciones and buenas vibras. I will be sure to send them back!xo
