Doing something nice

The kids and I are volunteering at an event in Boston called Christmas in the City. When we watched the video clips from Chronicle last year, we immediately decided to sign up. What an amazing organization it is. Christmas in the City is a 100% volunteer-led organization that provides a huge party and individualized gifts for about 3000 homeless children in our community. Children in shelters are invited to tell "Santa" their gift wishes, and then those requests are purchased by volunteers, wrapped, and gift tagged especially for the child. As you can imagine, this entails a huge amount of effort by the organizers and the volunteers. But the rewards, people. The rewards are amazing. Watch the vidoes to see for yourself. I'm just totally psyched to wrap presents. I love to wrap, and as an award winning bow maker, I feel my talents are underrated in my own home.
