I read this lovely story last week and it really inspired me to do something similar. It's about a family that gives a glass jar (think pickle sized) filled with money (mostly coins, some bills) accumulated over a year to someone they think might be in need.
I thought, Why can't I do that?
So I gathered up some baby food jars and am going to work to fill them with my change this year. I haven't decided if I will give them away as they are filled or if I'll wait till next Christmas to be a Santa of sorts.
