Blogmas Day 6: Charities to Donate to This Christmas

Hi! Welcome to Blogmas day 6! I can’t believe it’s already halfway done! Christmas time always is a time of giving which I love! Today I wanted to do a little roundup post for you filled with top charities to donate to this holiday season. Enjoy!

1. MAKE-A-WISH

Make-a-Wish is a pretty well-known charity that does great things both during Christmas and all year long! They help to grant wishes to children with severe medical conditions and have done some really great things.

2. TOYS FOR TOTS

Toys for Tots is a popular program during the holiday season. It’s run by the US Marine Corps and it collects toys to give to children in need who live in the local community.

3. OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

This charity takes donations during Christmas in the form of shoeboxes! Just pick a child’s age group, fill a shoebox with toys, hygiene supplies, candy, etc. along with a note and it will be sent to a child in need!

4. MEALS ON WHEELS

Meals on Wheels helps to give meals to senior citizens. They give meals year-round, but go the extra mile during the holiday season to give them a special holiday meal! You can help by donating or even volunteering your time to help hand out meals.

5. SANTA PAWS DRIVE

Santa Paws was inspired by Toys for Tots, but instead of taking children’s toy donations they take pet toy donations. They were the first online pet toy drive to donate toys, supplies, and money to non-profit and no-kill shelters across the United States.


The holidays can be stressful, but if you’re able to take a break and add some good to the world during this season, you can help make it better for someone else. Where do you like to donate during Christmas time? Let me know in a comment!
