Twelve Days of Christmas

We sing about it.
We write about it.
We countdown to Christmas by it.

What is it?  The Twelve Days of Christmas.

So………why don’t we DO SOMETHING with it.  Every day for the next 12 days, I will put a challenge out for you as part of  Twelve Days of Christmas Kindness.  I encourage you to see if you can make a difference to someone each day through Christmas.  Maybe you will enjoy it so much, you will want to continue kindness acts throughout the new year!

Jesus is the Reason for the Season, and He is the greatest gift of all.  He came into the world as a baby who was not born in a hospital, but rather was born in a barn with no monitors; no sterilization; no bottles.   He was perfect.  No flaws.  No colds.  No cancer.

But there are a lot of children in this world with serious medical issues.  Many are fighting for their life at St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital.   When children go to St. Jude’s, all services are free.  It takes a lot of money to run a research hospital like this but due to this research, there have been breakthroughs for cancer cures.  Unfortunately the journey to finding all cures is very long.

I have visited St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.  As a matter of a fact, they were the first hospital to where Bucket Buddies Mission delivered buckets. It is a cause close to my heart.

Today, as Day 1 of the Twelve Days of Christmas Kindness, I encourage you to donate to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital to be a part of a cure.  Christmas started with a gift OF a child.  Let’s start our kindness journey with a gift FOR a child.

Merry Christmas!
