Time for some Christmas Kindness

With Christmas and a new year right around the corner, it’s time to rejoice and reflect on everything that we have received in 2016. Look around you and soak in the joy of the festive season – families coming together for celebrations, Christmas trees fully lit and surrounded by presents waiting to be opened and excitement in the eyes of little children who’re waiting for Santa to bring them their wishes. If you’re one of the super lucky ones you’ll see snowflakes on your window pane and hear children playing in the snow.

So wherever you are, if you are enjoying the Christmas spirit as much as we are, we challenge you to step it up and go out there and be someone’s Santa. Make someone’s day 🙂
