“‘Tis the season”, they say. And, we have a Reverse Advent Calendar thanks to Kim Lindley and PassionatePennyPincher.com .

Do you need some fresh ideas for this season of giving? We can give to the needy and those in need; see the Advent donation ideas below:

“But when you give to the needy, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, so that your giving may be in secret. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you.
Matthew 6:3-4 (NIV)
