Christmas is the time of utmost joy and happiness that we celebrate with our families, friends, colleagues. From decorating the houses with all lights and balls to having a great feast with the family; from giving gifts to one another to getting a picture with our favourite SANTA CLAUS (Ho ho ho). There are tons of things and fun activities that we do during the holiday season
Sometimes, it just like there is no end of ways that we can celebrate Christmas. Yet, you must have been doing all these things over and over again every year.
How about a change this year; something new? Many unlucky ones are there who can’t afford all these things that might seem normal to you. Why not celebrate Christmas this year with orphans?
You can be their Santa and bring a smile on their face.
The presence of a family is essential during the holiday season. Many unfortunate ones are deprived of it and have no one to look back. Thus, it would be very thoughtful, if you could take this year to celebrate Christmas with those shining stars as much as you can.
Now, if you have decided to do such things, then this is something that you might not get by winning a million-dollar lottery. Yet, it will be a bit difficult if you are doing this for the first time. Still, there is nothing that can stop you if you are predetermined and have decided to do it at any cost.
If you are planning to pay your visit to a large orphan, then you might need some additional funds to manage things properly. For this, you can approach a direct lender and apply for Doorstep loans like provident.
A checklist to celebrate Christmas this year with orphans
Here, in this blog, we have prepared a checklist of major things that you will require for celebrating Christmas with homeless children. Now, let us get started.
Create a plan to be organized
It is important to create a proper plan to ensure that your kind gesture doesn’t go wrong at all. Visit the orphanage that you are thinking of going and know from the authority the total number of children living there. This will ensure that you don’t miss giving any gift to a child during the holiday season.
Most importantly, you will need permission from the authorities to let you celebrate the holiday season with the children living in the orphanage.
Choose the eatables
We all know Christmas would be incomplete without filling our tummies with delicious food like candies, snacks or others. After knowing the total number of children, decide the dishes that you will distribute to the children. You don’t need to buy everything from outside as it can be a bit expensive. If possible, you can cook all by yourself.
Here are some of the popular Christmas dishes that everyone craves for:
- Ginger bread
- Chocolate truffles
- Baked cookies
- Candy cups
- Egg Nog
- Roasted chicken
Kids never say no to “Gifts”
Every kid loves gifts. Thus, you can also arrange gifts for those children as it will be a bonus for them. And, when you have decided to be their Santa, you need a bag full of gifts. Check either online or offline to get the gifts for the small ones.
You can gift anything that can be either useful to them or for fun. Here is the list of some of the affordable toys that you can give to the children:
- Small mirror
- A beanie hat
- Stuff toys
- Christmas hats and dresses
Now, if the cost of buying all the gifts is getting a bit heavy in your pocket, then you can take small Christmas loans to arrange additional funding.
The smile that you will get after giving the gifts will be enough to melt your heart. No one deserves to be left alone this holiday season. Thus, make sure that you get all the things for the children that can make their Christmas full of joy and memorable.
