As the song goes "So this is Christmas, and what have you done?"
Well... A lot. This year has been an action-packed one for me, and this Christmas Eve as I pack to go and celebrate Christmas with family in Tuscany and then go on to spend some days in the centre of the world, that is London; I'm very mindful of the fact that so many will not have food and the essentials of life this season. And so, instead of flashing the plastic and ringing up at the tills, I decided instead to give the gift of food and education for the orphans at the Kalinda Childrens Home in Zambia who have lost their parents to Aids.
A simple card with a message inside as to what you have gifted and why, is a great gift to give family and friends. It is something all of us can do, so the 20 -50 dollars or Euro that you blow on a few trinkets that get thrown in a drawer after the tree and decorations come down, this year can have far reaching effect on someone's life and future. So I ask you to consider it. You can give after Christmas too.
Just Think about it....
A blessed, peaceful, Happy Christmas to you and your families.
