Holidays 2012

Kids Count

Of course there are many Americans who are not doing well this holiday season and we must never discontinue our collective efforts to create the best opportunity we can for every American. In the end, many Americans have a pretty good life when the entire world is considered. I hope that your holiday season is joyful and satisfying and when you sit down to enjoy the abundance that you have; take a few minutes to consider those that don’t.

This year, visit an area nursing home to brighten an elderly person’s day, donate to the local food shelf or area community action program, support our troops, or make a donation to the Red Cross. Make it a family affair, involve your children and let them help choose the organization which will receive your gift. Giving to others who can not repay you makes you feel very good in inside, give that gift to your children and family.

Remember, all kids count.
