“I’ve never really had a Christmas”
This is what one of RJLF’s newer Fellows told us when we asked her for a wishlist this year. She shared that her only experience with receiving Christmas gifts (she celebrates) had been at a youth shelter while in foster care. Before and since then, she and her family just hadn’t had the resources to exchange presents.
This isn’t a unique circumstance.
Holiday gift exchanges are a tradition most of us take for granted, even while so many are unable to take part.
If you are able, this year help RJLF grant the wishes of our Fellows and their children. Their wish lists are linked here.
