In a perfect world, Christmas morning would be a time for joy for every kid. Unfortunately, for far too many, it's not nearly joyful enough. Not only do they not get things they want, they can't even get the things they need.
There are many charities that try to help, of course, and they do wonderful work. Things Of My Very Own, for example, is one that's filling gaps, and they're sharing some of the stories that bring families in need their way.
