"My heart is full of love and joy as I contemplate the beautiful experience we all had together, bringing Giving Kids to Naples Park Elementary students this year! As always, I am honored by the donors, school staff, volunteers, and students - together we kept the tradition of bearing light together, of giving into another's life out of love. If there's any hope for our world, this is vital - that we remember that we are each other's business and that showing our caring in ways large and small really makes a difference (sometimes more than we know). I invite each of you to consider a time when someone impacted your life greatly with just a small word or deed. You may not have even known that person's name, or ever seen them again, but they left an indelible mark on your life. That's what each of you did today, and probably impacted more people than you even realize. Each of you impacted me, and I thank you sincerely.
May your holiday season be bright, may you always give more than you receive, and may you receive abundantly."
