"Boxing Day was traditionally a time when alms boxes were opened for the POOR. The needy would receive clothes, food, and other necessities from every household in town. What a nice way to give after you have done so much receiving during the month of December! You can build a little CHARITY into your holiday season (while reducing your own clutter) by cleaning out and giving your discards to someone in need. I'll bet that you can find plenty of excess "stuff" if you just go through your closets. Then find a local non-profit that will accept a DONATION. And if you don't have anything to clean out, you can always give of your time!"
