Spotlight on Anonymous Giving

Dec 13, 2016-- Imagine yourself alone. Around you swirl happy people, smiling, shopping, planning festivities. You feel adrift, apart, cut off from your community. But then you discover a gift waiting for you. Something thoughtful or needed. But the giver is anonymous. Who reached out to you with this thoughtful gesture?
