I'm excited today! I'm giving my Christmas jar and book to a young man at Starbucks. Divorced with 2 little boys, living with his parents and dividing custody. He's attending Tech school working on computers to help his future. I saved all year and am so blessed to be able to do this. The book touched me when I read it. It brought back many memories of hard times when I was younger not gifts of cash but how neighbors helped my mom with 4 kids and Dad passing away when I was 10. I just hought "what a great way to pay it forward". I pray that he will see that he is loved and will do the same when he has his life together. Will I do it again? Without a doubt!! Thank you so much for allowing me to reopen my heart.

Another wonderful true-life Christmas Jars miracle
I've heard many of these stories since Christmas Jars first hit stores in 2005, but they never get old. The latest story, just sent to me today, is one of my all-time favorites. It's a timely reminder that the world is full of good people, no matter what you hear on the news.
