We have given away three jars the last three years, but oddly enough they never reach the intended person they were meant for, because through very discreet ways we have inquired and found that the jars were never discovered. We can only surmise that they were not at the right address, or someone took them, but we like to think that they went to someone who really needed it and perhaps something even better comes of it.
So far there have been three placed at doorsteps in Tampa, Florida to those we believed could use it and of course we have found that they didn't reach the intended person. I will not give up the tradition though and have started my next year's Christmas jar, it is with a feeling of excitement that we choose the next person and I love the idea. Giving without anyone knowing where it comes from has the incredible ability to change lives and I believe it does...I hope even if it doesn't reach the one we chose, that whoever finds it was meant to...I only hope that it changes them in a good way!
