It's that time of year where our kids set out to make their list for Santa. Whether it's the hottest toy of the season, a pair of shoes they saw at the mall, or the newest game system, it seems like the list gets more extravagant every year.
It can be easy to lose touch during the holiday spending, and forget that not everyone can afford to give their kid's a Christmas filled with electronics, games and new clothes. But not everyone's kids have expectations of expensive gifts.
That's why a note from a 10-year-old boy is really hitting home for many of us that get wrapped up in the holidays.
His request is not for fancy gifts under the tree, but rather, for snacks. The reason for it is heartbreaking.
