Holiday Shopping Guide
I am 26 and my younger sister is 24, but miraculously Santa still visits our home every year. So we each put together a Christmas list (due on Thanksgiving) that my mom makes sure gets to the North Pole. My sister is one of the most caring and selfless people I know. Her Christmas list was short but inspiring. She asked for clean water and sterile childbirth kits for families in developing countries that do not have the things that we often take for granted. Santa will likely reward her for being so nice!
While most of us are probably not willing to give up all of our gifts there are other ways to help. Consider purchasing items that benefit your favorite charity. People Against Childhood Cancer has put together a holiday shopping guide with items that benefit childhood cancer charities- http://curechildhoodcancer.ning.com/page/2011-holiday-shopping. Happy Nappers donate a portion of proceeds to CBTF and they’re on the list. Some of the other gifts include ornaments and holiday cards. The greatest gift would be to cure all pediatric brain and spinal cord tumors. That is no easy task and we appreciate all of your support as we try to fight the toughest childhood cancer!
