A Secret Santa Gift from the Heart

For years I have participated in a world wide Secret Santa gift exchange on Reddit. This year, the person I am matched with (Kristi) asked that I donate to Equi-Kids/Equi-Vets, in her honor. I was particularly touched as she is a nurse and rather than making a big deal about how hard this year has been for her, she asked me to pay it forward. After reflecting on what a good person she truly is, I thought to myself that I would like to do more for her charity than just the $100 I am going to personally be donating in her name.  If I can raise an extra $100, I will consider that a win, so please think about chipping in even $5 or $10 to Equi-Kids in celebration of the selflessness of my SS giftee. It is a great organization and she is a sweet person for bring awareness to this cause. https://www.equikids.org/
