4. I think it is an excellent idea as well...

This year, my daughter had a sit-down with her children, all are school-age, and talked to them about cutting in half the amount of money that would be spent on their gifts by her, taking that half and donating it to a local Christmas charity for the poor and homeless. My grandchildren agreed with it, I was and am so proud of them all and told them I would match that amount and contribute to the same charity they chose.

Their choice was to send it to the local charity that provides a food basket full of goodies for Christmas dinner, turkey and all, for the poor.

What was done in the article is certainly something else to put in the 'pot' for consideration maybe next year!
