Mio Giving Christmas 2009

So the time has come again we started this last year every year we find kids or a family to donate gifts for we do in titi Mio's name she was so good giving to others and specially children so is a way to honor her and to teach the children that christmas is about giving.  

I know the economy is hard but our children are getting gifts there is no reason why others should not.  This year we found a  family of 7 children ranging from all ages 1 to 16... Samia helped us pick the toys but since she is a little girl she wanted one for her for every toy we pick I guess that is how we teach her is not just about us but others in Christmas.

The wrapping is always done by the whole family.  Mami wrapped, baba did tags and bows, Samia pick the bows and help us putting the bows with Milo's help.

Nenas Inshallah we would do this every year however there are a few rules:

-NEW toys NO DOLLAR store toys that would be Haram or unfair.

-NO receipt for the donation (that would be cheating here we are giving and then get something monetary in return NONO remembe we give without expecting anything in return)

-The greeting cards have to say From: AMIRA or titi Mio
