December Energy Action: As we enter this season of anticipation, we can help ease any stress with gift giving by encouraging you to buy less stuff! Please take a look at the December Energy Action Sheet for ideas and tips on what you can do to show others you’re thinking of them without buying more things. Buy your sibling a special date of time spent doing something fun together, or purchase a “gift” of chickens, goats, or education through World Vision, Heifer International, or Compassion International in honor of a loved one to benefit needy families in developing countries.
