My church has a "Giving Tree" which is an artificial Christmas tree hung with angel shaped tags. Each tag is labelled with an age and sex of a child or adult. The tags tell us what the item is that we should buy and wrap and then return these to the church.
On Sunday, I took two tags off the tree. It's difficult to buy extra gifts what with all of my medical bills, but I decided to do this anyway. I'll never meet the people I am buying gifts for, and I am sorry that they are in circumstances of need.
I am thankful for my blessings and hope to bless others with a prayer and a gift. Do you do something similar in your churches?
