Though I find them immensely beautiful, I have decided to not splurge on a Chopard necklace this year. These are some of my favorite pieces of jewelry. Instead, though, I plan to spend some extra money on others in my family for the holidays. Generally, I take a little extra money each Christmas and get something special for myself. Not this year.
Not only am I planning to get better presents for my loved ones, I have
also decided to put some money toward charity. Deciding on the
charity, though, has been difficult. Eventually, I decided on a charity
called Child's Play. This is a fairly new charity; it has only been
around since about 2003.
What exactly do they do? Well, this
charity donates things like video games and movies to children's
hospitals. These items are meant to help make the days a little easier
and brighter for the children that are having to stay in these
hospitals. Being a kid in a hospital is a sad enough thing in and of
itself. Being able to contribute to making life a little happier for
these kids is something that I have been interested in doing for a
I'm happy that this year I am not spending the extra
money on myself. Sure, it's great to have a little extra, but being
able to help out those who are really in need is so much better than
spending tons of money on jewelry for myself.
I told some of my
friends about this. They agree that it is a great idea, and are all
finding a charity that they are interested in and are donating to it.
The more people that do this, the better off our world will be. Being
able to help those that need it is what Christmas is all about.
