The Rest of My Life

Giving Back This Holiday Season

Welcome to the first day of Blogmas!  Most of the time if you stop by my blog, you’ll find posts about travel and healthy living, but two weeks a year I ask you to join me in celebrating my most favorite time of year…Christmas!  Each year I join with 11 other bloggers for the 12 Days of Blogmas!  We share lots of holiday goodness with you (giving back during the holidays, bucket lists, DIY projects, lists of our favorites, and so much more!) and we put together a giveaway for all of you!

We’re celebrating day one by sharing ideas for giving back this holiday season…

*Send a handwritten note to someone…a simple way to brighten someone’s day…because we all love getting “real” mail

*Pay for the coffee of the person behind you in line…or even better, buy an e-gift card and email it to yourself.  Take a screen shot of the bar code and share the picture on social media so others can use the gift card…you’ll definitely help someone smile!

*Bake for your neighbors…double your favorite Christmas cookie recipe and deliver the extras to your neighbors

*Adopt a family in need…many local churches and community organizations have programs in place to help connect you with a local family you can adopt

*Find somewhere to volunteer…you can look again at local churches and community organizations for events during the holiday season where you can volunteer your time and/or financial resources

One thing that makes it really easy to give back is to win lots of prizes so you can share your winnings!  And you have the opportunity to win a LOT.  You can enter through Rafflecopter and check out all of the prizes below…
