Random Acts of Kindness

31 Free Ways Families Can Give Thanks this Season

When focusing on a debt-free future, it’s easy to get so wrapped up in our own world of budgeting and spreadsheets that we lose sight of the true meaning behind why we’re doing what we’re doing.

To be more generous.

Think of the money I could give to the church, to help out friends and family, to save for my child’s college education, if I didn’t have all this debt.

But while we’re busy saving and pinching pennies, we can still spread our generosity as far as it will go. And in the spirit of the Christmas season, I’ve stumbled across the most amazing idea for an advent calendar – I wish I would have come up with it myself.

31 Days to Give Thanks this Season

Giving credit where credit is due, I present to you the “Random Acts of Kindness Christmas Calendar” by Wondermom Wannabe.

Filled with free ideas for kids and adults alike, this is a great way to shower your neighbors and friends and the entire community with love. 

I plan on sharing this with Nora and Andrew for the month of December. And, I encourage you to share it with your family. With any luck, it’ll become such a habit that we’ll be able to easily continue practicing daily generosity throughout the new year.

Thank you Wondermom Wannabe for this great idea!
