Remember that Gratitude and Giving do not require Gathering and while we all want to be surrounded by family and friends this year, it is important to remember that our actions now can help ensure many celebrations together in the future.
The only thing we should be spreading this holiday season is cheer, so here are some creative ways to celebrate the holidays while keeping your loved ones safe.

If you can donate toys to a local toy drive or money to non-profits that work with low-income communities to provide clothing or meals, it could make a significant difference to someone in need.
