Oh my Goodness there are so many things I actually don’t mind Australia taking one “thing” from American and that would be Black Friday and Cyber Monday…I cannot tell a lie…It is fantastic with all the deals that come out at this time of year. I usually know what presents I want to get for people and I do not go out to the shops at this time. Although a delivery cost is annoying, I really do feel like it’s worth it.
What I also wanted to write about though is what else we can do as a community to help others who are not fortunate during this times. There are so many different services out there that do help those and I wanted to write about what you can do also. I’m hopefully going to expand this to different countries, depending on what I can find.
Of course we all know that we can volunteer your time to help at volunteers and shelters. There are a large variety of these. You can also help families by setting donations, after all help doesn’t just have to stop at Christmas:
- The Smith Family (Australia)
- Mission Australia … (Australia)
- Homefront America … A place for children and family of Veterans, those on tour.
- Helping Americans find help … And list of places via state where you can.
