Best present wrapping

Santa's Little Elves

Yesterday, I spent 3 hours of my working day at Brown Paper Tickets to wrap presents for families in need of an extra hand for the holidays. There is an organization called Rise n’Shine that helps families in need all year round. “At Rise n’ Shine we provide emotional support, stability and advocacy for children and teens affected by AIDS. This includes those who have been orphaned, children and teens who are infected themselves and those who live with a parent or sibling with HIV/AIDS. We offer support through the Mentor Program, Summer Camp, Peer Support Groups, Children’s AIDS Memorial Grove, and Teen Retreats.”

With Christmas a few days away, they have put together a huge toy drive to make sure the kids have presents to open up on Christmas day. Each child was asked for 4 wants and 4 needs for what they wanted Santa to bring them this year. Then shoppers went out and found the items on the lists to the best of their abilities. We wrapped everything from new board games to jeans, and new warm coats to a big pink plush pillow. What a great day to spend at “work.”
