Gifts That Give: UNICEF Jewelry, Salvation Army and even Your Closet!

With the Holiday season well under way it’s time to start thinking about gifts and giving.  I always love to give gifts that have special meaning and can give back in some way especially to children. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) works in over 190 countries to save and improve children’s lives.  UNICEF provides health care and immunizations, clean water and sanitation, nutrition, education, emergency relief and more to children all over the world.
The UNICEF jewelry is beautiful and very affordable and would make a lovely gift for a loved one or even yourself.  The UNICEF website is filled with many other gift ideas as well as holiday cards all benefitting children.  And while thinking of giving don’t forget about those who are less fortunate in your town or city.  It’s a great time to clean out your closets gather old, small or outdated clothing especially warm coats, gloves and scarfs and donate to the local homeless shelters and women and children’s centers in your area.  Every winter season my daughter helps me go through her last seasons clothes and we donate whatever doesn’t fit.  It makes her happy knowing she will help another child and I hope will instill a life long passion in her to help others.  Even a small gesture can go a long way.
Another great way to give and help bring happiness to children and those less fortunate this holiday season is the Salvation Army  Angel Tree Program.  In Dallas/Ft. Worth the Salvation Army will collect over 55,000 gifts from 9 area malls to distribute to children in our region.
I know there are many other fantastic programs that give so if you know of one please share with me and others who may read this.  Lets all try to reach out and help as many as people as we can in any way possible even if it’s small.  It wont be to someone else!
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I’ll be back next Thursday, my regular blog day! Yours truly, Kathy – Fit Fashionista
