What is a Christmas jar?
I saw this on Glenn Beck (Fox News) the other night and was very moved. This is from the "Christmas Jar"website created by; Jason Wright.
"A Christmas Jar is a pickle jar, peanut butter jar, Mason jar or whatever else you have around to collect your spare change each day.
All coins are dedicated to the jar, and during the week before Christmas you carefully select someone to give it too, anonymously. Was a neighbor laid off? Is a coworker struggling with health problems? Has a friend lost a loved one?
Simply put your jar on their porch, in their car, on their desk--wherever--and you could change their life for good!
$50, $100, even $200, you'll be surprised how much change you can generate and how much you can affect someones life.
Will you pledge to give away a Christmas Jar this year? "
We plan to help a family this year. What a better way to get the kids involved and lead by Christ's example.
