At our church, Julie has the responsibility of spending one hour each Sunday teaching children ages 3-12 how to sing.
It's actually kind of interesting, since Julie, and she would admit this, doesn't sing. She is however creative in her approach. Yesterday she put stickers all over her face, and explained to each of the children, that she had caught the Christmas spirit and warned them that it was contagious!
She proceeded going around and putting stickers on the faces of all those who were singing. When church let out, the halls were filled with sticker -faced children proclaiming "That they too had caught the Christmas spirit."
We decided that we wanted to kick off December right by helping each of you catch what Julie and the children had caught.
Oh, don't worry, no singing required.
Here's what you have to do-
We are asking that you and your friends leave a comment on our site. It doesn't need to be anything lengthy. It might just say "Merry Christmas", Or "this one's for the kids." It may contain a Christmas wish.
For every person who comments between now and 5:00PM MST December 2nd, Cosmo Cricket will donate $1.00 to "Quarters for Christmas" a non-profit organization, that provides shoes for needy children.
During the rest of the month we will be showing on our blog, great gifts that you can make from recycled, inexpensive items, that you might have laying around your house, or that you could find at your local thrift store.
Were calling this "Thrifty Gifty". It should be fun and give you some terrific ideas for great gifts that you don't have to spend a ton of money on.
