Families struggling to make ends meet can’t always put presents for their little ones under the tree. Fortunately, there are plenty of people in the community who want to spread kindness and help families in need.
The world is full of little ones who wait impatiently for Christmas morning to unwrap their presents, but unfortunately there are also little ones who do not receive presents during the winter holidays.
Their parents, who are struggling to make ends meet, are not always able to put gifts under the tree. Fortunately, there are many people among us who enjoy doing good and helping those in need.
One such kind-hearted Earth dweller is 80-year-old military veteran Jim Ennis. During the Christmas season, one man does everything in his power to give positive emotions to those who really need them – Ennis has been making toys for little ones in poor families for 50 years.
Each year, he makes handmade wooden toys and donates about 300 of them to the Sanford Salvation Army. A man receives from his neighbors materials for the manufacture of his products, in addition to buying with his own money.
This occupation costs him up to 1000 US dollars a year. However, in her opinion, it’s not about money, but about making the little ones feel loved. Ennis knows full well what it’s like not to receive presents at Christmas.
“My father worked, but didn’t earn much money. It’s hard to celebrate Christmas well with five little ones,” said the Good Samaritan.
Some of her toys include fire trucks, dolls, and even piggy banks. The man hopes to continue doing this as long as he has enough strength and health.
“I love it when people ask me how much I get paid to make these toys. I tell them my salary is to see the smiles on the faces of the little ones, Ennis said. “I hope I can do it for as long as my fingers will allow me. »
