This is Day 13 of the 30 Days of Giving: Making Christmas Meaningful campaign, which is designed to bring the Believe.com community creative and practical ways to cheerfully give this holiday season through gifts, relationships and charity. Come visit the 30 Days of Giving Advent Calendar each day in our countdown to Christmas for intriguing and original ways to help you to experience and spread the spirit of joyful giving that God intended throughout the holiday season.
With Christmas upon us, you may be trying to find ways to give to those in need, but not know what organizations you should donate to.
Charitable giving is a great way to not only get into the Christmas spirit and embrace the true meaning of this most blessed season, but also to teach children and teens the importance of empathy.
Participating in charity and volunteering can be a great bonding experience for families, youth groups and church communities. As Christians we are called to help those less fortunate and spread Christ’s love by being His “hands” and “feet.”
