UPDATE: This giveaway is now closed. Congrats Sherry B. on winning the book!
If you’ve been around here for a while you will know that I have a great deal of love for the Christmas Jars book, story and “movement”. This book touched me in a way that not many others have and, for the last three years, we have made and given away a Christmas Jar ourselves (Mother and Daddy-O do too).
I encourage you to read the book as I cannot retell the story as beautifully as it has already been written. But, the premise behind the Christmas Jar is that you contribute to it throughout the year. Your pocket change (we exclude only pennies). A few spare dollars. And every time you do so, your spirits are lifted. You don’t have to have a lot of extra money or time or experience and even the smallest children can contribute. During the Christmas season, you anonymously give the jar to someone in need. Some years ours has been a random person that we encountered during our day, and others it has been someone we noticed earlier in the year that could use a little extra love and help.
In the spirit of spreading the joy that comes along with a Christmas Jar, this year I gave my two next door neighbors copies of the book and their very own jars. These ladies have huge hearts and I think (hope?) it would be something they would want to do with their own families.
And, as I have done the last few years, I also want to give a copy away to one of you!! The giveaway is open to US mailing addresses.
