She also tried starting a few of her own little businesses, like carnival games and selling rock paintings, but living on a dead end street doesn't make for many customers.

A few days after we delivered the gifts, the girls were shopping at Target with their grandmother, who was letting them pick out their own Christmas gifts. At the register, 2 college age girls slapped $100 dollars on the checkout and told the cashier to put it towards their bill.
I have often wondered if my girls really "got it" what we do for charity. Yes, they know it's good to give, but do they really know what their donations mean to those who receive them? This was their first time being on the receiving end of a gift from a stranger, and the joy it filled them with was way more than the few toys they received. I do think they "get it" completely now. They couldn't stop talking about how nice it was for 2 strangers to want to do something that nice, just for them. I will always be thankful to the two Target angels who gave them that experience and completed the lesson on giving.
Did you do anything charitable for those in need this holiday season?
