Having the ability to travel during this festive season can be a privilege for many of us but have you thought of making the lives of many children in your vacation destination happier during this Christmas season? No doubt you can’t bring snow to share with the children from the sunny and sandy beaches of Mexico but you can bring some extra toys or items that could make the less fortunate in Mexico happier, particularly the kids. Whether it’s Christmas or not celebrated in other states in the country, being soft hearted in the needs of other less fortunate would fulfill the sharing and caring of the Christmas spirits.

I would be checking in one of the isla mujeres hotels in Cancun, Mexico this holiday season and I hope I can put some smiles on the faces of some of the Mexican children surrounding the area such as those from Mayan Riviera, Puerto Morales, Playa del Carmen and in Talum as well. Children are the pillars and strength of our future, thus they should also have the privileges of being educated with proper educational items such as coloring books, crayons, markers and anything that would unleash their creativity in building a stronger nation.

While I am there, I surely won’t forgo the beautiful beaches along the coastline of Quintana Roo. Scuba diving would be in my itinerary to explore the wonders of the many coral reefs. Let’s hope I have the luck to encounter the much endangered sea turtle. Of course I also won’t want to miss out my favorite tamales, tortillas and gorditas. I hope I can bear the spiciness of the chipotle, the smoke-dried jalapeño chili more this time.

I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?

I had just learned from a seminar not long ago that no matter how rich or poor we are, we should contribute something within our means towards those less fortunate than us. That was what I did for those victims of the recent natural disaster down in Myanmar where it was hard hit by Cyclone Nargis.

The whole country was badly affected with ten of thousands of people, especially those from the remote parts of the country being made homeless without food and clean water. The sight and stench were quite unbearable with many animals and human bodies scattered all over the ruined crops and contaminating the water supplies. Many of the victims were still in shock as they have lost their families, relatives and friends in the worst disaster in their history.

The victims have lined up in most parts of the road in hope of getting relieves from donors. Life had been hard on them as their future is now in the dark. They do not even know when and how the next meal would be there for them. Together with a group of donors, we managed to deliver some food supplies and clothes in secured shipping boxes to the country. Some of the contributed items included rice, biscuits, instant noodles, dried fish and bottles of drinking water.

It was truly heart breaking to see the cyclone victims being forced to live by the streets. If you have the compassionate heart to help them, do whatever within your means to help relieve their lives. They really need you now.

When was the last time you actually donated something for a worthy cause, whether it is in monetary forms or in kinds? If it has been ages, then you should start considering doing your bit in helping those in need out there. There are many non-profit organizations out there which require your donations, mostly in monetary forms. But I have come across one organization with a unique concept of donation. You can donate in kinds and yet still get full legal IRS tax deduction.

Have you heard about the angelic organization who called themselves the Car Angel Ministries (www.carangel.com)? Not only can you donate car, you can even donate boat, truck, trailer, RV, tractor, motorcycle or plane which you no longer utilize them. They will arrange for the sales of your donated items and generate the funds to either your preferred beneficiary or their own which includes helping out single mothers, orphans, homeless, teen and adult rehab, as well as prison reform.

One of their current projects is to create animated children’s DVDs, anti-drug movies and prison literature to be distributed free in the USA to create the awareness on rightful living values. Don’t you feel great that just by donating one item and you can help thousands of lives? Maybe you would like to watch their YouTube clips on how wonderful their movies are.

“Help Us Help Others”
