If you didn’t have the chance to watch “The Coat” video — a beautiful story about a child’s choice to show charity to another child in need, please take a minute and watch it.

And then if you have an iPad or an Android tablet you can download a free, interactive app that children might enjoy.

The desire to have and show charity intensifies during the Christmas season. How can we continue to find ways to show charity to others, to watch for those in need? Our challenge to you as we begin a new year is to think and look for ways to continue to serve the poor, to relieve suffering, to cheer a friend, to help a stranger.
