QOM-December 2018 Posted December 1, 2018 by SAVE Intern


Thank you for responding to the December SAVE Promise Club Question of the Month! Please answer the question below: Why do you think it’s vital to give back to your community during the holidays?

    I believe it is vital to give back to my community during the holidays because it is not the act that matters, it is the fact that care, love and support is shown and flowing through a community. All factors that help build a stronger and closely united community are important factors. Along with the fact that you are helping others it builds content in the givers and supports both sides. The holidays also spark lots of emotions on many people as it is a time out of the year where people want to spend it with loved ones which not everyone may have with them at the time. So giving back is another way to fill in the absence of that loved one!

    In many instances, the misfortune of some fall on deaf ears to those incapable of witnessing it, like certain agencies. As a result, it is the communities responsibility to carry out the importance of giving by providing for those in need because our actions may determine whether some are able to eat at night. Locally, we always notice when someone is in need of our help, regardless of if its financial, physical, or emotional. However, during the holidays we are so clouded by the continues blessing and love we have been receiving they we are no longer even glancing at the well being of others and have pass that responsibility onto the next bystander. But, when no one is checking on their well-being, they are being deprived the love, happiness, and stability that is embedded in their deeply in their rights. We must never forget how even the smallest acts of giving can be the most impactful on their hope towards better circumstances as one year is traded for a new beginning.

    Community is so important and when we’re willing to give, it brings people together. When we are coming together, then it’s creating less isolation. Also people can tend to be too afraid to reach out. That’s when it’s most vital for us to give back, because it may be when they need us the most.

    I think it’s vital to give back to your community during the holidays because this is a time of appreciation for one another. A time where everyone gathers and spreads joy and happiness to one another. We must all spread as much kindness as we can to each other because it is needed. Not everyone can be as happy as others because of their own dilemmas. However, as a community, we are able to change a frown on someone’s face to a giant smile. By giving back, we can bring people closer together into one big happy family.

    The holiday season is a busy time for a lot of people, however it is also a very family and community oriented time – which everyone should enjoy. Giving back to your community during this time is important because it brings everyone closer together, which is exactly what the holiday season should be about! Not only that, but a lot of people find themselves unable to meet ends meet during the holiday season so helping these people out during the holiday season is also important.

    The holiday season is a time to give back. It is a season of joy, but it often can bring hard times as well. The holiday season reminds people of loved ones, especially those they have lost, and can be especially hard for those who are less fortunate. A community should stick together and help its fellow members, which is why it is vital to give back to others during the holiday season. Whether working to help those within your school through food and clothes drives, volunteering at a soup kitchen, donating presents to orphanages or homeless shelters, or one of the many other ways to give back, everyone should strive to make the holidays a season of happiness and joy.

    The holidays is sometimes the stretch of times where people struggle the most. With seeing family members or maybe missing people a little expect you never know what anyone could be thinking about at any time. So make sure you go the little extra distance to make someone’s day!

    I think it is vital to give back to my community during the holidays because it strengthens our community and it benefits someone other than yourself.The holidays are about community and the giving spirit. By giving back, you bring people closer together and help turn a season that has the potential to be lonely or sad into something positive. And I think we all need some more positivity in our lives, especially during the holidays.
