Ottawa: The Savvy Guide to December


It’€™s December, and even though you might be thinking about that long gift list for your friends and family, we’€™ve moved on. It’€™s time to start thinking about how to instill an appreciation for the gift of ‘€˜giving’€™ in your kids.
Here are some ideas for you to help capture the true spirit of the holidays.

Bring your kids to your local toy store to choose a gift for someone they don’€™t know, then wrap it up and drop it off at a toy drive
Why? Because it’€™s good for them to understand that some kids don’€™t get everything they want for the holidays’€”in fact, some don’€™t get anything at all.

To one of the eight performances of The Gift of Christmas
Why? What better way to celebrate the holidays than watching a show filled with music, dancing, drama’€”and a giant Christmas tree with 3500 lights? Every performance will also include a surprise gift for a member of the audience. This year, they are supporting a few different charities including A Home for Agnes, an orphanage and a school in Ghana.

A gift of three baby chicks for someone who has everything
Why? Because it’€™s a $15 gift that literally keeps on giving for girls in developing nations who will use the chicken eggs to sell and feed their own families. It could help save a girl’€™s life.
