There's a blogger I follow, Jenny from the Bloggess, who put a simple request on her blog this year to help others.
And man, did she ever.
Read below for the results of what happened, from one little blog. Or check it out here:
"Over 900 gift cards were sent out by 689 people who were so thrilled to help. 450 people who needed small Christmas miracles received donations for medicine, food, or presents under the tree for their children. No large corporations got involved. No one only offered to donate if they got something out of it themselves. With no sponsorships, no ulterior motives and with only a simple need to reach out and help a perfect stranger, 689 everyday, normal people (Jewish, Christians, Atheists, Muslims and more) sent out over $40,000 worth of donations to make sure Christmas came."
Talk about a helping hand. Merry Christmas everyone.
