Give Back This Holiday Season

At this time of year we are often busy among our selves trying to find the perfect present for that special person in our lives. While you are hurrying around do you ever stop to think about the man holding the "I'll work for food sign" or the little boy or girl that has no jacket to wear or warm winter clothes? You may not think that you can make a change but believe me you can. Any thing that we do to help another we help to make a change. Here is a list of things that my family does through out the year. Perhaps you will see something that you can do as well.

  • We help serve at the food kitchen at least 3 times a month. It is a community kitchen so many volunteers are needed.

  • We help at the clothing closet that is located at our church 3 times a month. We get the biggest joy by helping those that visit find a great out fit or two or perhaps something for their house

  • We help create food baskets at christmas time. Our church works together to share with families offering them food that will last for a week allowing the families to save money for christmas gifts that may not have otherwise been purchased.

  • We help to weatherize homes for the winter for people who would otherwise not be able to do it for themselves

  • We helped to roof a house of a church member this year. Both her and her husband are elderly and did not have the extra money

  • We have helped out in food drives which are common in schools, scouts and churches

Do you have any ideas that you could do to help another? Do you do something special to help others?

Robeez the makers of these super cute Soft Soled Paisley T Strap fuchsia shoes that I know would look so super cute on my little Princess also believes in giving back.

A simple, fun and easy way for you to give back is to go shopping. Shopping? Yes shopping at will make a great impact. For every pair of shoes that is purchased through December 23, 2009 on the website As part of Robeez Season of Giving Robeez will donate a pair of shoes to a child through the K.I.D.S. (Kids in Distressed Situations) organization. K.I.D.S. brings hope and self esteem to children in need and their families by providing new clothes, shoes, toys, furniture, books and juvenile products donated by leading manufacturers and retailers. Children who are ill, living in poverty or victims of natural disasters will the receivers of the donations.
