Writing down your holiday shopping list can be as exciting as a parent as it is for kids. One thing we’d like to implement more of each year is ways to give back to others. 

Our children have been fortunate to be surrounded by a number of people who love and care deeply for them. Oftentimes this means we end up with more than we imagined during the holiday season.

We received Dark chocolate and cranberry cookies from Cookies For Kids Cancer to try and review their non-organization. We love what they're doing and the taste of their treats.

Throughout the years, we’ve done our best to show our children the importance of giving back to others. 

For years, we would create holiday baskets for family and friends. Since we started hosting events in our home, we’ve cut back on making our holiday baskets. 

How To Make A Difference Today

To help continue with our tradition of giving to others, we’ve decided to look for new ways to give back during the holiday season. Below are three ways we’ll be giving back this year: 

1. Send cookies to our family.

Cookies For Kids’ Cancer, a non-profit organization selling all-gourmet treats, recently announced it has raised $15M. All of the proceeds from cookie orders are used to fund pediatric cancer. We’re sending a package to my parents and will be including a batch of these delicious cookies as well. 

2. Donate unopened gifts to our local elementary school for their toy drive.

Our boys get a lot of gifts during the holidays, many of which they might play with once and put aside. I rather gift the items to someone who would make use of the toys. 

This is a great way to remind the kids of the importance of helping others in need.

3. Write Christmas cards to the veterans and their families when we donate our lightly used items.

It’s always nice to hear kind words from others. We like to bring some hope for the new year by spreading some cheer to those who might need a smile. You know what they say, the best thing you can give someone is your smile.

    This sounds like such a wonderful cause. Shared this post with my followers on Twitter.

  2. I was recently introduced to this company. I love their cause, their mission and their cookies are pretty yummy too.

  3. Great idea to regift presents to children in need. I usually give throughout the year not just during the holiday season. However, for Thanksgiving, with my church, I contribute to local families in need. Happy holiday season to you.

  4. I love all of these ideas so much! I am trying to instill to my kids the idea of giving this time of year and these are such simple but impactful ways to teach them to think of others and make a difference.

  5. I’m always looking for a great organization to support over the holidays. I usually choose the children’s cancer ward. This looks like a great one.

  6. These cookies sound good and I love that they go for a good cause! Thanks for the heads up!

  7. What a great way to give back. I like to pick a family to sponsor each holiday season. That’s how are family are good cookies 🙂

  8. These are great reminders. I love how you compared it with a cookie! Loved your post!

  9. This is so awesome! I had never heard of cookies for cancer until recently when I noticed someone selling cookies in front of their home (holiday display that gets lots of visitors) for this cause. Of course I had to be a good cookie myself and purchased a few 😉
