December is a time during which we prepare ourselves for Christmas … it’s also a time of greater and smaller miracles. We have a chance not only to contribute to them, but we can also initiate such wonderful moments around us. A few days ago I was messaged by such a person, who decided to make a difference in the surrounding her reality, a reality which is not the same colorful for everyone during this magical time of Christmas anticipation – a month of awaiting for the most joyful holiday in the year. I came to a conclusion that it’s a kind of action which is really worth being supported … and who knows, maybe one day this cause will grow to the rank of Szlachetna Paczka*? Big things start with little steps and it depends only on us how we direct our destiny, and sometimes we can also influence someone else’s future.
Martyna Pawłowska-Dymek is not only the author of a blog – Lucky Seven – but also the founder of a charity action for mums-to-be. What is this good cause about and what were its beginnings?
‘A Belly Santa Claus’ is nothing else but the usual Santa Claus, who visits mums-to-be and their unborn or newly born babies. The idea occurred to be a kindness of one person’s heart, a person who thanks to her previous life situation related to her overdue pregnancy – realized that the right support of people around her was really crucial – especially during such an important pre-Christmas time.
The beginnings of this actions weren’t easy. Of course, preparing the present itself is a very pleasant process. Who doesn’t love to give gifts to other people, especially the ones who really need your support. For Martyna – the most important aspect of the whole event was choosing the right person whom she would like to deliver her gift to. How to choose people who are more in need from those who are less in need, especially when the possibilities of help are restricted? How not to offend the person who we want to give our gift to? How not to allow ourselves to be misled by frauds? Martyna dealt with these and other dilemmas very well … and thanks to her great faith in the validity of this action, she not only prepared a gift, but also found a mum,who really needed her help.
How can you join this action? These are the steps you can find in the description of the event itself:
Start of the action: 1st of December

Remember that all good things you do in your life always come back to you and the ones you love … that’s why, don’t hesitate and create something amazing for people who really need you! Each smile or good word can also change your life, so the possible benefits could be mutual. I hope you’ll be willing to take part in this good cause and that you’ll invite your family and friends to create beautiful and full of love Christmas gifts.
See you around!
