One of my eventual goals for Boston Mamas is to launch a local philanthropic arm; meanwhile, I’ll report to you on other wonderful efforts. The Big Wishes for Little Wanderers gift drive in Jamaica Plain is underway (through Dec. 21); select a gift from a child’s wish list, deliver donations, or purchase a gift online for delivery (have tissues handy before you read the descriptions of the kids in need). And to get fit while helping others, head to the Blue Hills Reservation toy drive & bike or hike event on Sunday (10am – 1pm) to benefit Interfaith Social Services. Make your donation then hit the hike or bike trails. Both efforts are very much in need of items for older kids.
