This year our family chose to donate to the Children's Crisis center of Phoenix. It is a 45 bed shelter that serves as a temporary home for kids birth to 16 years old. For whatever reason these kids are placed there until a more permanent situation is found for them. Most kids stay anywhere from 3 weeks til 2 months. My heart aches at the thought that they have no home....and worse yet during the holiday.
The shelter was able to supply a wish list for the kids during the holiday and We had so much fun buying up toys r us!
I will continue to do this every year and continue to encourage the spirit of giving to my 2 girls. They are quickly learning how blessed they are, to continue thanking God for their blessings, as well as how to give back to those less fortunate.
