Poverty is deep and complex, but it isn't what you think.
Ready to challenge some assumptions you may be holding about poverty?
I married into a big family that was extra big on Christmas. My family of origin was small and spread out across the country. Parties were intimate, dinners were small and gift giving was often reserved for children and immediate family only. My husband, however, came from a large tight-knit farming family.
When you are out buying gifts, whether it’s during the holiday season, or at any time of the year, give the gifts that keep giving. Why not give a gift with meaning, opportunity and a chance for change?
During the holiday season there are so many demands on our wallets. We invite Londoners this year to think about giving the gift of food and supporting a local effort to help others lift themselves up.
The holidays are about giving. We buy gifts for our loved ones to show how much we care. We give donations to charities who impact our community. Gifts hold a sentimental value. They represent generosity and selflessness during a caring time of year.
