This Christmas a friend of mine and I decided that we would donate to the local food bank. It wasn’t a direct decision, it actually was a compromise.
He was insistent on buying me a gift (he doesn’t gift small), and I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to reciprocate.
So rather than dealing with the awkwardness of the aforementioned situation, we agreed that we would pool a specified amount of money ($50), and make a joint Food Bank donation. This actually worked out quite well, as we were both comfortable with the donation, and it went to those less fortunate than either of us.
*cue warm fuzzy feeling*
I don’t know about you guys, but that feels so much better than a Christmas gift.
