I had already spoken with my mother about how I wanted to donate a toy to a local toy-drive but wasn't sure how I would go about doing it, so I was more than willing when the Borders cashier propositioned me. I don't know why, but ever since I was young, I have gotten great joy of knowing that I'm helping out someone who doesn't get half the holiday experience I get. Every year, I get all giddy and can't help but buy into every 'help the needy' gimmick. Honestly, I can't wait to hit the local retail shop in the coming weeks just to plop a couple bucks into the bright red Salvation Army bucket. I remember ringing that bell in high school for three hours as a part of our community service club and I really appreciated those few people who took the time to reach in their wallet.
In general, I guess I just LOVE to give gifts - to my friends, my family, significant other and especially to people that need it. Not to toot my own horn, but I have dubbed myself 'the all-time best gift-giver,' so if you ever need any assistance, just let me know.
