Feel Good: Each year my family anonymously helps struggling families get Christmas presents.

This is an annual project my family started doing 3 years ago after the untimely passing of my younger brother Zac (seen as a kid in the photo above).

How it Works:

This year we are donating to "Help In Crisis".  An organization in Oklahoma that helps single moms, some from abusive relationships pay for Christmas presents for their kids.

This is especially important to us because our family was anonymously helped by an organization like this during some of our hardest times.

Mom had no idea how she was going to be able to afford Christmas for her 5 kids. At the last moment, someone showed up at our house with a car full of presents

We hadn't signed up for help, they just showed up. They saved the day for us in a big way - and all these years later I can still remember being so excited seeing all of those presents sitting under the tree.

I have no idea who sent them. But they impacted our  lives in a big way. And every Christmas we talk about it. 

So now - we're going to do the same thing for as many families as possible.

How you can help:

Doing this is the best feeling I get all year.

Last year a lot of friends and family members wanted to contribute to our cause so we opened up online fundraising.

100% of the money raised will be given to "Help In Crisis" and will go directly to paying for presents and toys for these families.

Please donate and help us make this the best year ever!

The Good Deed is Done! Here's a shot of the team at 'Help In Crisis' receiving all your donations.

They said that as December counts down they're never sure where the money is going to come from. Now they know.

Thanks again to everyone who contributed, I hope you feel as good as we do.

Now - enjoy the rest of the month and have a Merry Christmas!

Hey guys, thank you to everyone who donated. This year was our best year yet.

All of the money raised will be donated to Help in Crisis tomorrow so they can do all of the secret Santa shopping for families in need.

When these kids, (that may not be expecting gifts) see the presents and toys under the tree on Christmas morning it's going to make them feel amazing.

I know, because a long time ago I was one of those kids.

So when Christmas morning comes - don't forget to take a moment and think about the good that you've done this year for these families.

It's a big deal.

Thanks again and Merry Christmas!
