"Giving back is about getting back to the true meaning of the holiday season and passing that philosophy down to our children. It's very freeing to focus your attention on what you can do for others as opposed to what you can get for yourself. Once you do that, the stress of the holidays seems to melt away. The best part is, anyone can do it. Giving back doesn't have to mean giving money or buying gifts. Donations of time are just as welcome and maybe even more rewarding ways to spread joy this season," noted Hook-Sopko.
