Something you cannot wrap

December 18, 2015 | by: Judith

Wrapping paper shreds….tape stuck to the end of the table...the sound of bells in my head…

What could this mean?? 7 more days- Yep, you heard right. That’s 1 week- till Christmas Day. If you are anything like me you have yet to get your shopping done, then you need to get a move on. But seriously who has time between balancing the kids, pets, jobs and laundry?

Tis the season to be jolly!

So, now here I am looking for gifts for those difficult people. You know the ones who have everything or those that say they don’t want anything and then are miffed that you forgot. Instead of going out to the malls that are filled with frantic people searching for the same things I am, I am going to use technology to help me locate the best gift I can get this Holiday for Matt. He is my secret Santa, one of those difficult family members, who has everything and hates most things I buy him. Yeah, talk about Murphy’s law.

Google – Most popular gifts for the season. Let’s see what we have on the list: Hoverboards, Iphones, tablets, cameras. No, no, no and no

What do you get the man who has everything? A gift that will make him value the holidays, even smile when he opens it. It was then that it came to me. Markus, Shiva and Meowth. Matt has a soft spot for his three cats, they are the true delight in his life. His babies. He loves working with felines and in our family we call him the cat whisperer for a reason.

Oh wow. Guys, I think I found the perfect gift.

What if we didn’t get the usual gifts for Christmas this year? What if instead we gave something that can't be wrapped or tied with a bow?

Remember that charity Holistic Blend supports? I just recently wrote about Neveah’s Charity of West Lincoln. It started as a small organization with only a few dedicated volunteers, and has transformed into a larger, growing group with constant needs. Desperately calling for help, especially over the holidays, when families go on vacation and do not know what to do with their cats. Or people are unable to care for their felines anymore. Allergies, kids, too small, too big, too weird. The reasons are plentiful.

Whether its volunteers for events, fosters, even doing other tasks such as transporting cats, or something as simple as passing out information or making a few phone calls can free up other volunteers with areas of specialization. This brilliant charity was the answer to the problem.

What if this year you gathered up your family and discussed helping out your local animal shelter or charity?

One of the most important things that NCWL needs is people to use their social media and share postings of cats in need of homes and helping get the word out and finding these cats their forever homes.

What if we all could make a difference?

This is perfect and I know Matt will love me even more once he sees what I am doing for him this Christmas season.

So, come on. Join us… Get on your Facebook, Instagram and twitter and let’s build awareness, spread the joy, share these photos around while confirming that it takes love and dedication to make a difference this Holiday Season!
