Today was the first day of the 25 days of giving! To start off our giving this holiday season while we were at Walmart we picked up 2 gift cards before we started shopping and I handed them to Ayden and he was able to pick out 2 families while we shopped to gift them to.
The first family was so surprised she thought we were joking. When we were leaving she found me in the parking lot and thanked me again. She was doubtful there was money on the card but tried it when she checked out and much to her surprise we were telling the truth.
The second family was also caught off guard, we talked to her for a few moments she wanted to know why we were doing it and if if was affiliated with anything. So I shared why we were, turns out they are also a homeschooling family and she liked the idea so much they are going to pay it forward this holiday season too.
When we were done Ayden wanted to hand out more I told him maybe next time, I do like his giving spirit. It was a great way to kick off our season of giving.
What did your family do today??
