We’re less than a month off Christmas now, so it’s time to start thinking about ways to make others happy, because that’s what Christmas is all about.

For many people struggling to make ends meet, Christmas is the hardest time of the year rather than the most joyful. This holiday season, one in every 13 Canberrans will struggle to pay for essentials like food, toiletries and clothing.

I invite you to join Communities@Work’s movement to Give Joy to disadvantaged Canberrans this holiday season by purchasing a life-changing, tax-deductible gift for those experiencing hardship.

Head to http://givejoy.commsatwork.org/ and have a look at the options they have up there. They’ve got a whole pile of great ways to help out locally this Christmas.

Need a reminder of what Christmas is all about? Let Dr. Seuss and Boris Karloff get you in the spirit.
