It is about that time! Christmas! To help you get into the holiday spirit, I had to share this video that my brother, Tim, sent to me today.  He sent it to me this evening and I immediately clicked on it and was drawn in!   It warmed my heart and I hope that it warms yours, too. You may need a tissue or two…

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Atlanta have this new video out and I love it. Underprivileged kids are given exactly what they want for Christmas, but then they are also presented with a gift for their parents. Now for the kicker- they have to decided between the two. A gift for themselves or a gift for their parents. 80% of the kids that were given the choice decided to GIVE instead of RECEIVE one. Mashable reported that each choose to give their parents a gift, instead of getting what they want.

Oh! And the children that picked to GIVE to their parents instead of GET for themselves… they got both!
