When I was a little kid, Christmas was my favorite time of the year, I looked anxiously at the calendar waiting for December to arrive with chocolates, presents and lots of food, the last one was especially my favorite because eating is one of the few things I’m actually good at.
Over time I started to lose interest in wanting to celebrate the holidays, especially if you live far away from home and you lack of patience to decorate the Christmas tree because you it doesn’t end up looking as pretty as your mom’s, but there’s something I haven’t lost within all these years and that’s the gesture of giving.

Cuando era niña la Navidad era mi época favorita del año, miraba ansiosamente el calendario esperando que diera vuelta a la página e indicara que diciembre había llegado con chocolates, regalos y comida a montón, este último era especialmente mi favorito ya que comer es de las pocas cosas que se me dan bien en la vida.
Conforme pasa el tiempo fui perdiendo interés en querer celebrar las navidades, sobre todo si vives lejos de casa como yo y careces de paciencia para decorar el árbol navideño porque no te queda tan bonito como el de tu mamá, pero algo de lo que intento no perder es del gesto de dar.

#UnaFotoParaUnJuguete

Las Rozas Village in Madrid promotes this incredible gesture gathering donations along the Red Cross to collect 1,000 new toys and bringing a smile to a thousand children. If you’re within the area doing last minute shopping: find the sled, make a voluntary contribution and, if you feel like it, take a photo and help to promote this string of good wishes. And if you’re not within Madrid, remember you can always help to the foundation of your choice or by simply reminding to give back a little of what we are lucky to have along with that happy and exciting feeling we had as kids when and we received a new toy in December.
