Charity....Tis' the Season!

I love this time of year! It's amazing what the Holiday Season will do to people. We tend to think a little more about others and less about ourselves. It's like the world is a happier place for just a few weeks.

This weekend I was able to participate in a couple of service activities. Saturday morning as part of a world-wide Help-Portrait the Cache Valley Photographers went down and took pictures of people at the jail. It was a great opportunity for all of us. Not only were we able to donate our time to take and give pictures, they were able to give back to the community by donating to a local charity. And now they will have a photograph to encourage them to move forward toward greater things in life and a gift for a family member back home for the holidays.


In the afternoon I headed down to Magical Moon Toys where they were helping Toys for Tots. With a small donation the kids could come and get their photos taken with Star Wars Characters. It was great to see the excitment on the children's faces as they got to meet some of their favorite characters all while helping a great cause.
