Christmas is just around the corner and many people are gearing up for holidays, family gatherings, presents, and lots of delicious food. Of course, not everyone is in this privileged position and there are millions of people who will not have any of these things.

      1. I am so happy at what you are doing and taking your children in this kind act. They will surely carry on what you have teached them in life.

It is something they will never forget and will continue to guide them through their whole lives.
