#Giving Give A Gift and Make A Friend with Gift and Befriend!


Give a gift and make a new friend!

I have a mission this year to help as many people as possible during the holiday season! We don’t have much ourselves in the way of finances but we are going to do what we can!

I discovered this cool website called Gift and Befriend! I’ve been checking it out and it seems like a great way to connect with people in need! I was impressed by the type of people asking for help on this site. Thanks Gift and Befriend for helping us to find people who genuinely need help and a friend!

Just Smile

There is no feeling more uplifting than seeing a child smile!

We wanted to take a break from buying gifts and celebrating to shine a spotlight on one of our favorite charities for the holidays! The best thing a child can give you for the holidays is a smile right? Let’s help them have a reason this season!

I have been a supporter of the organization Operation Smile for quite some time now! They are an amazing organization that helps children around the world to get the medical care they need to repair cleft lip, cleft palate and other facial deformities free of charge.
