Breakthrough's Christmas Store, 2010
I love the Christmas Store - not just what we do, but how we do it. Basically, we ask people to donate brand new toys to Breakthrough, and then we set up this rockin' store where community members can buy gifts at about 10 cents to the dollar, and then we just turn the proceeds back into blessing the community through our ministry. It's just so much more dignifying than if a strange family comes into the neighborhood from out of town and gives presents to a poor family. No handouts, but definitely a hand up. We didn't come up with the idea, but it's genius and that's why we use it.
