The holidays are a great time to catch up with friends and family to celebrate the joys of life, but it is also a perfect opportunity to make a difference as a group. We’d like to offer some ideas of how you can make a difference for in your holiday festivities.
1. Bake cookies or make something else that you can give to the people in your neighborhood. You never know for whom the holidays may not be such a joyous time, and that small act of kindness could go a long way.
2. Hold an “ugly Christmas sweater” contest to benefit an organization you support. Have a 10 dollar buy-in for anyone to participate, and instead of winning a cash prize, let the winner choose what organization to donate the money to.
3. Adopt a family with Turner Syndrome and give peer-to-peer support to help another in need.
4. Host a community holiday party, inviting people who may not have family and friends to celebrate with. Giving out an open invitation is a great way to make new connections with community members and provide them with a sense of belonging.
