Day 11 Tasks:

Family Holiday Project/ Kindness Challenge


1. Give a Random Person a Christmas or Holiday Card

Our annual Christmas cards were sent off this weekend so the girls sure enjoyed illustrating one of their own to deliver to a random family. We hope it put a smile on their face!

~Everywhere you go, leave a trail of kindness

2. Donate Gift(s) to Charity

Locate a local charity to donate a gift.  It could be as simple as cans for a soup kitchen or donating a toy to Toys for Tots.  Local churches also have trees adorned with angels to support local children.  This year we choose to join hands with other families to give back to children in our town.
Looking for more inspiration, check out on of my favorite Christmas books: The 13th Gift  by Joanne Huist Smith.  This heartwarming story reveals how Random Acts of Kindness transformed the life of one family during the Christmas season inspiring them, in turn, to give back.  One of the reasons we incorporate Random Acts of Kindness into our holiday season, this book brings forth the importance of love and giving.
