I Need Your Help............

This year is hard for most everyone I know. Finances are just not there to provide the Christmas presents that we have in the past. So, this year I am teaching my 4yr old daughter a hard lesson in the most kindest way I can.

I want to teach her that Christmas isn't all about getting gifts. I want her to know that it is the thought that counts. That knowing someone is thinking of her is more precious than receiving "toys". Shes a very smart little girl and most all "little things" seem to delight her to no end.
I need your help to make her Christmas THOUGHTFUL. Please help me in doing this by sending her a Christmas Card Snail mail style. She has received two cards already from family members and she really cherishes them.
If you are interested in helping me please send your cards to:

Kaitie Reid
PO Box 127
Morrow, Ark 72749

Random acts of Kindness dont have to be gifts of high dollar value. The best are the simple ones. Paying for someones meal when you stop in to have breakfast or lunch. Buying a stranger a cup of coffee, sending a letter or card just to say im thinking of you, calling your neighbor and offering to pick something up for them while you are at the grocery store, stacking a bit of wood for those that use wood heat, offering to watch someones kids so they can have a few hours to themselves, donating your unwanted items to a shelter for those in need, so many ways to show kindness without expecting anything in return. These are truly the best gifts and are cherished more than you would think.

I really look forward to taking her to the post office each day to see what Thoughts are sent her way! Thank you all so much for helping me make this the best!
