Christmas Happiness:

In response to the commercialization of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, some nonprofits dubbed the Tuesday after Thanksgiving as “Giving Tuesday.”

But every day is a giving day for Christmas Happiness. Some $1,600 came in on Friday — money that will help parents and guardians get gifts for some 53 children.

The money Christmas Happiness collects goes to the Salvation Army, which gives qualifying families a $30 voucher per child to buy toys and clothes.

The giving season is definitely here, and every donation is appreciated.

Won’t you help a child know the joy of Christmas?
