It's that time of year when I look forward to the Annual Lighting of the Rockefeller Christmas Tree. Oddly, Moffat has hitched a ride to see the amazing site THREE times and I have yet to go! It is very high on my bucket list. In 2011, The Carpenter's Gift by David Rubel was published.. This is the story of 8-year-old Henry, who works alongside his father during the Depression selling Christmas trees. Henry dreams of living in a home other than the drafty shack they currently have and the kindness of others, brings Henry's wish to life.
David Rubel wrote this book in conjunction with Habitat for Humanity. Today, deserving families now call the magical wood from a Rockefeller Christmas Tree their home! Enjoy the video links below to learn more about this wonderful partnership and giving back to the community!
