Each day, a special Advent-themed Daily Jolt, with an opportunity for reflection and a microChallenge. Some of the reflections come from unlikely sources, and the challenges help you to take an action, usually a small one, based on the reflection.

Return to the Advent calendar.

Surprising others this Christmas…

“A Child, a Child, shivers in the cold”
(from the Christmas carol “Do You Hear What I Hear?”)

Our Savior faced a cold night in a barn on that first Christmas; he was wrapped in swaddling clothes to keep warm and placed in a feeding trough for animals. There are children today who face similarly harsh winters and BustedHalo® prayerfully asks that you keep in mind the innocent victims of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — children who are in refugee camps and poor neighborhoods. Operation Iraqi Children is one organization helping kids and they have an urgent need for blankets, backpacks, shoes and tarps. Another very helpful item that often goes overlooked is a hot water bottle, which helps mothers keep their babies warm. Many babies in refugee camps and poorer neighborhoods struggle to make it through the harsh winter months.

operationiraqichildren.org has all the details you’ll need to donate to these children.

Today’s Prize is: a Sirius-XM Hat and Knapsack.

    Thank you, Busted Halo editors, for your Advent Calendar. It’s a very good resource. I have a suggestion for this date in next year’s Advent Calendar: feature some information on the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
