    Hi. Great idea and a very valiant effort to help the less fortunate. Christmas is the time of giving, and I am glad there are ways such as this to help the needy. I have also seen the ways other charities are helping, such as collecting used Christmas decorations and extracting the useful parts for recycling, and recycling christmas trees into mulch and fertilizers. Just other ideas to help turn Christmas into the joyous occasion that everyone deserves.
