12 Good Deeds of Christmas

As many of us prepare ourselves for the mania of the festive season of gift shopping, decorating and planning the Christmas lunch menu, it’s easy to forget that for some, the holiday period can be a difficult, particularly this year with the devastating bushfires. In addition, statistics show that more than 3 million people live below the poverty line across the country, including 740,000 children. While for the ageing population, as many as 50% of people over 75 live alone. We’ve compiled 12 good deeds of Christmas to find ways to give to those in needs. Even doing one will make your Christmas Merrier.
