There are so many kids in your state, in your country and in the world that do not get the same things as our kids or the kids in our country. Not all parents can afford to feed their kids on Christmas, neither can they afford to buy presents, clothes nor gifts. The kids can be underprivileged owing to their economic background, their physical handicap or just because of the environment that they are born into or live in. You can make your Christmas meaningful and their Christmas special by doing a lot of things. Here are a few things that you can do this Christmas to make it special for them.

1. Buy them new clothes

Instead of donating the old clothes that you no longer wear or the clothes that your kids no longer use, you can buy them new clothes. It is best if you take them to the store so they can decide for themselves on what they want to wear for Christmas. You can gift them the gift of free choice this Christmas.

2. Buy them new toys

As with the clothes, you should buy them new toys instead of giving them discarded toys. If you cannot afford a new toy for these kids, try to cut back on the money you would be spending to buy toys for your kids. Remember that you can buy toys for your kids through the year and these kids get a chance only once during the year. So be liberal when it comes to buying toys for them.

3. Invite them home

Instead of going to the place where they have been put up and visiting them, you can invite them home. They can either spend Christmas day with you and the family or can stay the whole week with you knowing and learning how you go about spending Christmas every year. You can give them a sense of family even if it is for a short time.

4. Let them decorate the tree

You would have been decorating the Christmas tree every year, but if you are bringing an underprivileged kid home this year, then you should let him or her decorate the Christmas tree. Always appreciate whatever they do, even if the final job is horrendous to look at.

5. Treat them as one in the family

Do not treat them any different. Even if they know this is fleeting, they will forget it for a day if you act wise and do not remind them of their status for a day or more. This could very well turn out to be the most memorable day in their lives.

6. Include them in the family snapshot and mail it to them

More than taking the picture, it is important that you send them a copy. Sometimes this could be the only happy memory they can have for years.
