On the 3rd day of Christmas

A friend of mine who is one of those people that is passionate about making a difference sent me a digital musical Christmas card from a charity called the Brotherhood of St. Laurence in Australia where she does some work. Like so many charities they don’t seem to be saving up their spirit of giving just for Christmas but are making a difference all year round.

Love thy neighbour

There is no doubt that many organisations and people do great work, but I sometimes ask myself why do we feel the need to travel half way around the world to be ‘nice’ to someone when there are so many people on our doorstep who we could show a little more care and consideration to. Would this not help to make the world a better place too?
