The Ultimate “Made in America” Christmas Gift

December 15th, 2011 by Peggy Farabaugh

One caveat before we get started.  This gift is probably for adults only.  It wouldn't really be fair to give this to little kids.  I mean… you definitely don't want to get reactions like the ones in this Jimmy Kimmel video.

So what's the ultimate Made in America Christmas gift?  Well first you have to check out this link Annette posted on her Facebook.  It's a Matthew West video titled One Last Christmas. It's a story about a 13 month old boy who was diagnosed with childhood leukemia and the family and community that was determined to give him one last Christmas. 

Considering the meaning of Christmas (or Hanukkah or whichever holiday you're celebrating) my vote for the ultimate gift is one that helps someone else.  Why not give your friends who already have everything the gift of a donation in their name to a favorite charity?  Maybe that's a gift to St Jude's Children's hospital to help the families of kids with cancer or a donation to your local food bank or animal shelter or… 

Your donation will be quickly spent to stimulate the local economy, create jobs and maybe even change someone's life.  Wouldn't that be the ultimate "Made in America" Christmas gift?

Thanks to SodaHead.com for the artwork.
