The Gift Of Giving

We have all heard the saying “It is better to give than to receive.” Unfortunately not all of us, not even Bernardo Chua,  can admit this to being true. An eleven year old girl named Trinity left presents under the tree in Astoria Park in Queens with a note that stated, “For any family that might need them to give to their children.”
These toys that were put under the public Christmas tree were toys that she had in her room. Instead of throwing them away or getting rid of them, she decided to donate them. Her father says that she has donated toys in the past but never in this form of charity. They checked on the bag a few days later and it appeared that others had started leaving presents as well. It only takes one person to start something, the rest will tend to follow. Something as little as this can leave an impact on others lives. Let’s not forget the all too familiar saying, “It is better to give than to receive.”
