There’s something about the Holiday season that inspires all of us to give more. Whether that means finding the perfect gift for a loved one, taking time from your hectic schedule to be with family, or volunteering at a soup kitchen; there is warm feeling that goes hand in hand with making someone else feel good.
This year, Affect Strategies participated in the USPS‘ Be an Elf Program. This program allows needy children to write letters to Santa, which are then directed to participating post offices. Good Samaritans pick up the letters and send gifts directly to the children, their siblings and parents. As an agency, we sent gifts to 10 families and were able to provide these families with much needed clothes, shoes and toys. It was such a rewarding experience to come out from behind our desks to pick out great gifts for those that are less fortunate.
The holidays are a busy time for everyone. It can be hard to take a step back and remember what the season is really about. Bringing joy and happiness to others is a great way to remind yourself that there is always so much to be thankful for; even in times like these.
The Affect team would like to wish you a happy, healthy Holiday and New Year!
