I just spent the better part of today coordinating and delivering Christmas gifts for 53 kids I never met before, and I can't wait to do it again next year. Children of prisoners are often some of the most overlooked victims of crime in our country. Angel Tree is a way to get involved and help make an otherwise sad and lonely holiday season a little brighter for one of these kids. I've had the benefit of being involved in my church's Angel Tree program for the past three years. I'm not posting about it here to brag about my involvement; believe me when I say I'm only one of dozens of people that make this happen in my tiny church. Rather, I mention it so that you can look into the program and maybe get involved as well. I promise you it's an investment of time and money that pays huge emotional dividends.
