Give the teacher a most meaningful gift
(NC) Lights on the tree – check. Turkey in the freezer – check. Family presents bought and wrapped – check, check.
The season of cheer is feeling a little cheerier. You're breathing deeper. You're even humming a little Christmas tune.
Then you pull up in front of your child's school. While your sweetie climbs in you wave at the teacher, and freeze. No gift for the teacher.
Out of time and out of ideas, the last thing you want to do is head back to the mall so why not give the teachers in your life a gift they'll never forget? Teachers care about children so select a gift that can make life much better for a child in a poorer country.
At very reasonable cost, some ideas from the website www.givejoy.ca, include: Get-Smart Toys - for a child with a special need ($15); a School Kit for a Child who is Blind ($6); or Powerful eyeglasses for a child with very little vision ($34).
Not only are these meaningful gifts a teacher, your young ones will also experience the Christmas joy of giving to children overseas.
