13 of 24 Random Acts of Christmas Kindness -- Be Kind to a Senior

I'm going a little out of order but I'm doing what I can when I can. 

Note to self for next year: December is the busiest time of the year for you. Perhaps you should consider the 12 days of Christmas next year so there isn't an overlap between all the end of year school activities, work activities and the Christmas kindness challenge.

This challenge was near and dear to my heart. I love seniors! 

Did you know, in fewer than 25 years, one in five people will be 65 years or older in the U.S. (Source) The baby boomer generation is becoming older and the biggest increase in population will be among those 85 years or older.

initially, I was leaning towards Meal on Wheels. Out of curiosity, I did a little research for a high impact charity that addresses aging. There are so many wonderful organizations that do incredible work.  Alzheimer's Association, National Council on Aging, and Justice in Aging to name a few. 

Ultimately, I've decided that I need to do more. I need to find volunteer opportunities with the aging that my kids can participate and really benefit from this interaction. In the meantime, I chose Meals on Wheels. 

Mission Accomplished!
