The season of giving
by Tammy Townsend Denny, TI Executive Director
Did you know Advent begins November 27? That is a little over two weeks away!
While Advent is supposed to be a time of quiet preparation and prayer, the reality is that many of us are shifting our thoughts to our Christmas shopping lists. It is hard not to when stores have had Christmas lights flashing since August.
Each year, I try to avoid the Christmas shopping frenzy by focusing on ways I can give to others in sustainable, life-giving ways. I do this by donating to or purchasing from a charity that is important to the gift recipient.
If you would like to make charitable giving a part of your Advent and Christmas season, may I suggest making a Celebrate Life gift to the Theresian Foundation, honoring someone important in your life?
You can also consider asking your friends and family to give to the Theresian Foundation in your honor instead of buying another pair of fluffy Christmas socks that make your feet sweaty.

If you prefer to have items to wrap and give, consider some of the Theresian jewelry options. All proceeds benefit the Theresian Foundation. To see the jewelry, please watch this short video from Theresian Foundation Board Member Lynn Moroux, Esprit de L’ame, Lafayette, Louisiana.
