One of the things I love about this time of year is that it truly does seem to bring out the best in others.
Despite a stagnant economy, or perhaps because of it, I probably see more opportunities to give to charities than ever before. Whether it is the Salvation Army volunteers faithfully ringing their bells as a sign of the season, churches organizing holiday food drives, or radio personalities soliciting donations and toys, there really is a plethora of venues where one can give something.
And, inevitably, most of us do end up giving something during the Christmas season.
