5 Ways to Give this Holiday Season
It's the most wonderful time of the year! A time in Texas that is not always filled with snowmen and sledding, but smokers and tamales. Through the twinkling lights and the crinkling of the multi-colored wrapping paper, it is undeniable that one of the most magical components of this time of year is the spirit of giving.
Take the stress out of giving this holiday season with these five ways to support Texas Folklife or any non-profit organization.
