Virtuous Twist to a Birthday Party

During this time of year we can all get caught up it the hustle and bustle and forget the true meaning of what Christmas is all about.

An 8th grader in one of our programs gave us all an amazing example recently. His parents had decided to give him a birthday party. He told them, "I've received enough this year. It's time to give."

So he told all of his friends who would be attending the party to bring gifts not for him, but for the inner city children at Angel for a Day.

He collected 40 gifts and he gave them all away. I'm sure he will never forget that birthday party the rest of his life.

God bless, Lou
