Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories No. 17: Grab Bag

For my Grab Bag post today, I would like to focus on the Spirit of Christmas Present, not the Spirit of Christmas Past. And by Christmas Present, I mean Christmas presents!

The best gift that anyone can give me this year is to make sure that someone in need has a wonderful holiday. I want to thank all those who generously have given to my Online Red Kettle here on my blog and at Facebook. The image below shows how full my kettle is. My original goal was $500, and you can see how your donations have helped in achieving that goal:

I also appreciate all those who have adopted a needy child and/or senior citizen in their community by purchasing something from their list of needs and wants.

It's never too late to help! I will continue to request donations and adoptions through Christmas Eve. The season of giving is 24/7/365!

This post is a part of the "Advent Calendar of Christmas Memories" meme created in 2007 by Thomas and Jasia. You, too, can write your own Christmas memories, either for your personal journal or blog. Visit Geneabloggers to participate and to read others' posts on these topics.
