One thing about the holidays that seems to be almost universal is the fact that everyone seems to be a bit more in the giving mood. This brings me utter joy as I make it a point to give back every time I possibly can. In the ten months I have spent with Walker Pharmacy and Walker Boutique, I have been blown away with the sheer amount of effort the company puts into giving back.
Finding the perfect gift is as much a challenge as it was the years before, and it seems that the hunt for it has become as much of a holiday tradition as decorating the Christmas tree and watching our favorite holiday movies. Why is it that the most difficult people to shop for are those we know best? It’s easy to put in $10 and 10 minutes of thought for that office Christmas party present. But selecting the perfect gift for your mom? Sister? Or wife? Fuhgedaboudit. And when you really want to give something thoughtful and personal to the woman you love that represents her personality, there stretches before you a vast and mysterious ocean of possibilities!
Christmas is just around the corner and we are officially in full-swing Christmas mode! Can’t you just feel the excitement and uplifting of spirits?
What words come to mind when you try to describe the Christmas spirit? For me, hope and generosity are two of the hallmarks of everything we feel during the season that inspires us to feel grateful and share our joy. Without hope, we dare not dream for the future; and without a reason to hope, we shrink into a small world that only revolves around ourselves. But more than any other time of year, Christmas reminds us of the hope that was given to us in a little town called Bethlehem, and the generosity of grace that was poured out in a place called Calvary. This Christmas, we hope to inspire you with some ideas on how to let your generosity flow out onto strangers who need a little hope this Christmas… if you’re looking for ways to donate and bless others in your community, here are our top three ideas for December!
