My wife and I both heard about the story from different sources at about the same time and one night we asked each other if we knew anything about the Christmas Jar? Neither one of did and we wanted to know more so we got the book and read it. From that moment on we started our own jar and we gave it away this year to a very needy family. We have also told others about the story. Since then we have purchased a couple more books so that we can pass them around for others to read and learn about the story. This is one way that we feel that we can help someone because we have been so blessed by God.
