Christmas Jar Story: 'many people lost their homes.'

Mandan, ND:

Our 6 year old daughter and 4 year old son worked
hard to "make" a Christmas jar this year. We had
a thousands of houses flood in our area this
summer and many people lost their homes. We
decided to give our jar to a retired couple who lost
their home to the flood. The kids took the jar to
them on Thanksgiving day, handed the jar to
them and promptly chirped "This is so you can
buy a new house." I was very proud of my children
that day and hope it makes them feels as good as
it did me.

We have already started our next Christmas jar.
