December 24: “My second year without presents,” says 11-year-old Christmas Diamond Haynesworth, who lives in a family homeless shelter. On her wish list is “some stuff for painting. And that’s about it.” (washingtonpost.com)

December 26: “On Christmas,” reports the Post, “between 30 and 50 people showed up at the shelter with bags of paints, paintbrushes, easels and sketch pads for the girl.” By noon on Dec. 26, Christmas’s room was filled with art supplies. (washingtonpost.com)
