What are you doing to help others this holiday season?

There are a lot of 6 figure income earners on this website I am sure. I am looking for ideas and would like to know what all of you are doing to help others this holiday season? Are you doing things to benefit the homeless out in the cold, disadvantaged children, your friends and loved ones? I would love some ideas on what I can personally do to help others?

Thanks!

@louisrosenberg your comment on this post is exactly what Christmas is about! I never thought to ask my church if they could refer me to a struggling family I could help this Christmas. Great idea that I will pursue this week!

I made that post a few years ago. Good to see it is still going around. What I am doing in my hometown here in Tennessee this year is getting a list from my Church of families with children that are struggling financially. I mean seriously struggling. They will have the lists ready by this Tuesday. My plan is for my wife and I to go shopping sometime around the first of December. My Church is giving me the names and ages of the parents and age of the kids plus male or female. Our Church had all of the kids aged 8 and younger write down a Santa Wish List at both morning services this morning. I will go to the mall and complete the entire lists, within reason. I am also going to order the family a full Christmas Dinner from Omaha Steak Company and have it delivered to the family. There will be a card to the family from Santa with $1000 in cash and a message for the kids.

My wife and I live alone with no kids and we have more than enough money for ourselves. If I end up coming out of pocket with a few thousand dollars to give a nice, struggling family a happy and fun holiday they could never offer their kids on their own, I feel it is well worth the money. Helping nice people during a tough economy with 8% inflation feels like the right thing to do. 

If I can motivate one other person reading this to do something similar in their own city then I feel I have really done something positive.

Good Church going people perform good deeds all the time. I think this Christmas more than ever it will really make a difference.

Thank you to my wife Sarah for setting this up through our Church. This was her idea. I am lucky to have an incredible woman by my side reminding me that doing for others can often feel better than doing for ourselves.

This year I will be volunteering at my Church on Thanksgiving. We are going to be open Wednesday night to allow homeless a place to sleep. Thursday we will be serving a full turkey dinner to anyone that is interested and I will spend about 6 hours helping out. I am taking my 9 year old son with me to teach him what it means to be completely selfless and help others. I think parents of the last 25 or so years have done a terrible job raising their kids and I will not be one of those parents. My son will study, play sports, and above all else he will learn the importance of helping others. I will raise him right if it is the last thing I ever do and it all starts with giving back. Going to church, being a nice person, and doing at least one thing big or small to help others every day even if it is just holding the door for an old lady and wishing her a great day.

I believe in giving back. I would love to hear what others on this website are doing to help others, especially with Thanksgiving coming up in a week, and Christmas next month.

I have always felt this and I follow it myself constantly... If you make a lot of money you need to stop being a selfish asshole and help others.

I just started a donation fund for 'the Well Path' on my Facebook page. This involves helping in any way, exploited girls in Southern California and other locations. Many have been sexually abused or convinced to become prostitutes by their so called 'friends'. It is disgusting at best. There are approximately 8,000 girls in this area who need help. The email is, info@wellpath.org. Phone contact is 442/777-2046. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
