Rethinking Christmas Gifts - #giveaway
By Melinda Langston, of the Pampered Pets Mysteries, by Sparkle Abbey
Hello everyone! Happy holidays and Merry Christmas from Orange County!
It’s that time of year when find myself getting caught up on finding the perfect gift for my friends and family. I’ll be honest, they don’t really need anything. So what should be an enjoyable experience of picking out a fun and personable present winds up an exhausting and stressful experience.
This year, I decided to do something totally different. Instead of purchasing gifts for my friends and family, I’m going to spread Christmas cheer by making a donation in their name to their charity of choice. I was worried they might think I was taking the easy way out. When I shared my idea, everyone was excited, and immediately texted me information about their favorite charity.
The joy of giving has returned! I think we even started a new holiday tradition.
What about you? If someone was to make a donation in your name this holiday season, what organization is near and dear to your heart?
Leave a comment, along with your email address, and your name goes into the Season's Reading drawing for a signed copy of your choice of Pampered Pet Mysteries book! A winner will be randomly drawn Thursday, December 13th at midnight.
