Christmas list – the leftovers

I should have started a little sooner for my Christmas in Colors because I have run myself out of time. I had a few things picked out for white, yellow and green (both color & mindset) but not enough of any of them yet for their own individual posts. So I made a casserole. Enjoy.

Of course I would be remiss without finishing out the entire series with my thoughts on the best gifts of all, the gift of giving/service to others. The second set here are all about non-profits or services/products promoting good. If you’re reading this, you’re probably in the top 5-10% of the world’s wealthiest people and have the opportunity to help out in ways that we often forget. Whether your desire to help is focused on spiritual, people or environmental, there’s something here for you. Even if you don’t have passion for any of the below that I do, I’d encourage you to find your own places to plug in and help. Strapped for cash? There’s plenty of coat drives to start, food lines to help serve and sandwiches to hand out in your neighborhood. Make it happen.
