A Little Perspective At Christmas

It’s that time of year when we can all get a little overwhelmed and lose sight of the true meaning of Christmas.

While many of us are hunting down all the bits and bobs on our children’s wish lists, there are some very sick kids in hospital.

Across Australia girls and boys of all ages will be receiving treatment at various places, including Sydney Children’s Hospital.

Each year, Kyle and Jackie O run a toy drive to bring smiles to the faces of the unwell children at the hospital. This year Toys R Us joined in the fun by donating $80,000 worth of toys.

Radio listeners were also encouraged to donate money so Santa and his helpers could make the children’s Christmas wishes come true.

A giant board was placed at the hospital so the kids could let everyone know what they wanted. The jolly man in red then got to work.

The result is just beautiful and this video is definitely worth a watch:

What a heartfelt gesture that is especially relevant at this time of year. It’s also a great reminder that having a healthy and happy family is the ultimate gift.
