Turns Out You Can Buy Happiness

Stockmann and the Hope charity have combined forces to bring Christmas cheer to underprivileged children this year. A lot of parents have trouble making ends meet and can't afford much in the way of Christmas presents for their kids, and that's where we come in.

You can help either by donating old toys to children in need or by purchasing a present from a wish list. I elected to do the latter.

The process was very simple: I just walked up to a salesperson and we picked out the present together. After I paid and wrote a small note to the child, she took care of everything else.

Think about participating if you can. It can be hard to rediscover the magic of Christmas as an adult, but doing this will make your heart grow at least three sizes, and you get to make a kid really happy in the process.

You can read more about the toy drive here and peruse the wish list here.

(The info here only applies if you're living in Finland, but for everyone else, I'm sure that you can find similar toy drives at a local charity.)
