It's that time of year again
To decorate our homes
To cook our family meals
To get our shopping done
And to give and receive gifts
But when you unwrap your box
Will you hope for toys or treats?
Or the trendiest material things
That you saw advertised on IG
On your personalized newsfeed?
We're more connected than ever
Why not use it for a good cause?
Because right now, somewhere
Around the world there is a family
In need of some disaster relief
Due to conflicts, climate change, and
Circumstances beyond our control
And one day I hope that family will
Receive a gift like yours, and in it,
Will be shelter
