About Share The Cheer

The Christmas of 1990 found a large number of friends and associates wondering where the "magic" had gone and how to avoid the commercialism and pressure of the holidays, while teaching our children the true meaning of the Christmas spirit.

We found several unfortunate families that year who needed a hand-up, so we helped out. Their requests were small, but their needs were great. Our appeals for assistance were from the heart and everyone who was asked came through with gifts, money, food, tears, toys, singing and generosity unsurpassed! has continued with each Christmas since, helping the overwhelmed, the ill, the sad, the lonely and those far less fortunate than those of us - who have our families, our careers, our happy children and food on our tables. We truly enjoy the privilege of doing so. We found the "magic" of Christmas again, and together with God's help, became Share The Cheer Foundation.
