We, the people who frequent ATS, are the best people in the world. We are curious, open-minded, and care about the issues that affect the human race. This is a plea for all ATS members who have the means to reach out to one person in need this holiday.

My son has a friend who is dirt poor. He has very little, whereas, we live in one of the wealthiest cities in America. We have a new Xbox sitting in a box, and a DJ Hero game. We are wrapping them up, and on Christmas eve, we are going to make one kid a magical Christmas.

Peace may not happen in our lifetimes, but Goodwill to Men can be achieved with a little compassion, unselfishness and concern for our fellow man.

Buy a giftcard and give it to a stranger waiting at a bus stop. Buy a Starbuck's coffee, and hand it to the guy outside.

Do it person to person, cut out the non-profit organization.
Happy Holidays my fellow friends at ATS.
Change begins among us.

That is a great idea. This is about us coming together. I was watching the news (it was late ), and I saw that for the very first time in years, kids wrote to secret santa, and all they wanted was coats, and sneakers, socks, and scarfs.

I donated this year, but I am sure there is more to do. Thank you for this and I hope that more people do things this year.

Peace, NRE.

It would be great to hear stories about our experiences reaching out and helping our less fortunate fellow man.
We are going to take my son's friend a hand print of my son's in plaster and tell him that my son made it just for him (they are in ninth grade). Billy will accept the gift with gratitude and enthusiasm. He is such a great kid.....we will be laughing....because who wants a handprint from your friend? We will then bring out the good stuff. This is fun.

I cant understand why we are all so sure of ourselves.

if this kid is as "dirt poor" as you say, nice choice of words btw, then maybe you'd serve him better by giving him something more pragmatic than an Xbox? No offense, the kid will love it for sure...but it sounds to me like you'd be getting more out of this than the kid. Why not just buy him a nice shirt and an awesome book with a savings bond inside? Who knows, maybe then you'd help him be something great...
