Yesterday my husband came home with a wonderful idea… he suggested that we pick one needy child to give toys or clothing instead of giving to each other this holiday season. I’ll admit, upon hearing this I only saw my hopes of receiving a remote car starter for Christmas fly out the cold, drafty window. But he does have a good point here…. What better way to make the holidays a little brighter than helping those in need.
So I began my research on where or how we could donate. Here’s what I came up with
My Two Front Teeth offers a personalized online gift-giving experience to aid underprivileged children. These children are selected through community organizations and allowed to individually pick their one holiday wish. The child’s wish profile is entered into the online database where donors then choose an online sponsorship.
Donate a new toy or give a donation to help make Christmas a little brighter for a needy child in your community
