What I want for Christmas

Nov 26, 2010 by

I have a house full of stuff

I have a closet full of clothes

I don’t need anything.

Is there some gadget I don’t have?  Sure, lots of them.  Is my car on its last leg?  Yeah, kind of, but it works.

When asked what I want I have to think about it.  I don’t know.

That’s when I realize what I want for Christmas.   Nothing.

I don’t want more stuff I don’t need that I then have to find somewhere to store.

What I would really like for Christmas this year is for that time, money and energy to go toward those that really need it.

Please donate to one of these great organizations.

This Christmas please help someone who truly needs it.

If you absolutely must buy a gift for someone, make it something you can experience and do together.  Buy tickets to an event, take a class, go out on an adventure together.   Spend some time with friends and family making great memories this year.

    You know what. We've talked about doing that for a couple of years and we have always backed off out of lazyness of setting this up with family members but this year we'll do it. I've just sent out the other days some emails explaining to our close friends and family that if they want to get us something fun, small and personal for under $10 they are welcome to do so, and that if they planned to spend more, then can they please give it to a charity (I've included some links). So far the response has been great!
