Tis the season of giving! Christmas is so different from many holidays. Personally, it forces me to slow down, take in the winter air, and feel a sense of joy around. Simultaneously, it’s a time not many people have the opportunity to enjoy wholeheartedly due to stressful or severely hard times. Of course, one doesn’t have to wait until Christmas to volunteer at a shelter. However, I think it is the perfect time of year to think about how to give back to your loved ones, including society as a whole. After all, Christmas is all about coming together to spread love and kindness to others. Here is a quick list of 20 ways you can give back this season:1.) Donate Clothes to Local Goodwill2.)
