Christmas Jars

What is a Christmas Jar?

A Christmas Jar is a pickle jar, peanut butter jar, Mason jar or whatever else you have around to collect your spare change each day.

All coins are dedicated to the jar, and during the week before Christmas you carefully select someone to give it to anonymously. Was a neighbor laid off? Is a coworker struggling with health problems? Has a friend lost a loved one?

Simply put your jar on their porch, in their car, on their desk--wherever--and you could change their life for good!

$50, $100, even $200, you'll be surprised how much change you can generate and how much you can affect someone's life.

Will you pledge to give away a Christmas Jar this year?

To answer a comment:  No, I haven't read the book.  I saw Jason Wright on TV (Fox News, I think) talking about the jars and got more information from his web site.  I'd love to read the book.  I'll be doing up-dates on how it's coming to get my jar filled.  I'm looking for a recipient.

Did you get the idea from the book? I read it last year and it's a great read.

This is what I love to see! Hope that jar fills fast and furiously between now and Christmas :)

This is very sweet! I know Jason has a FULL jar. I am going to share this post with him.
