This young lady did something for others on her own 20th Birthday!
I’ve done something similar – One year my husband and I threw a big “Birthday” party and I asked everyone to bring a gift for a child. Since my birthday is near the end of the year, I then donated them all at Christmas time to my favorite local charity “Interfaith”. I can’t take credit for this idea – my cousin has done the same thing for years. For her 50th birthday she threw herself a BIG party and asked her friends and family to bring jeans or socks which she then donated to a homeless shelter. Everyone was very generous and she actually had to rent a small u-haul truck to take the bounty!
It’s a great way to celebrate a new year in your life and it feels SO GOOD! I hope you might consider doing something like this – you can take your special day and use it to make a special day for so many others*
