What a Wonderful Idea!

Every year the girls wine group I am in gather children's names from the "Angel Tree" and buy them gifts.  We form groups of 3 or 4 and try our best to buy everything each child wants that year. It is truly the best feeling in the world!  Knowing that because of you, some child is going to have a big smile on Christmas :)

A Southern Accent has just shared another idea.  Bloggers for Boxes! 

Have you heard of the Shoe Box Christmas effort?  My old church used to participate, and I always enjoyed it so very much.  The idea is that you put items into a shoe box that are for a little boy or a little girl.  Read more about specifics HERE at A Southern Accent's blog post about this opportunity.

I found a link lets you enter your zip code to determine the closest drop off location in your community HERE.

I am definitely going to participate this year, because really, who doesn't like the idea of making a child's day :)

We are doing this this year too. We held a contest over at our dog blog and we are making donations to Samaritan's Purse in the winners' names. It is such a great idea. I love the idea that your wine group ladies have too. Every child deserves a Christmas.

The fiance and I are doing this instead of giving Christmas gifts to each other this year. I'm so excited! We're getting married on 12/27 so we decided we'd rather give gifts to a child than give each other a gift followed by a wedding gift two days later.
