Christmas is generally accepted as a season of kindness and giving, but in truth, Bronner’s loves sharing the spirit of kindness all year long. Without a doubt, you’ll want to join us in celebrating others’ acts of kindness with a special Valentine’s Day GIVEAWAY!
Kindness and Christmas
Christ and Acts of Kindness
Acts of kindness are central to our Christmas celebration here at Bronner’s CHRISTmas Wonderland. After all, we remember God’s gracious gift of salvation, initiated with the coming of Christ to earth that first Christmas.
Additionally, the ministry of Jesus leading up to His sacrifice on the cross was the utmost example of a life lived with acts of kindness always in mind.
St. Nicholas and Acts of Kindness
As we watch Santa Claus greet children, we can’t help but recall his beginnings as Saint Nicholas. In short, Nicholas was a bishop of the early church and legendary giver of gifts and performer of acts of kindness who continues to be celebrated in many countries to this day!
Charles Dickens’ Ebenezer Scrooge
Thirdly, we share the words of Ebenezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol”: “I will honor Christmas in my heart, and try to keep it all the year. I will live in the Past, the Present, and the Future. The Spirits of all Three shall strive within me. I will not shut out the lessons that they teach.”

Contest Winner Pays It Forward!
Thank you to everyone who shared a story of an act of kindness. Undoubtedly, your experiences touched our team. By all means, they found it difficult to select one winner.
However, Heather’s story of a stranger’s kindness as she escaped an abusive relationship and started a new life captured their attention and garnered their votes.
The kindness continues from our winner Heather in Bronner’s “Acts Of Kindness” Snowbaby giveaway as she wishes pay it forward.
Because Heather’s redemptive act of kindness took place in Michigan, she’s asked that the figurine be donated to a shelter or program in Michigan to encourage and give hope to other survivors. Indeed, we are pleased to announce that Christina Tipton accepted the Acts of Kindness Snowbaby figurine along with Heather’s framed story on behalf of Traverse Place in Genesee County.
Be sure to read Heather’s story and the many other fine acts of kindness that were shared in the comments below.
