The holiday season is about giving to your friends and family, and it's also about giving to those in need.

One of the greatest gifts we have as people living in 2018 is social media.

Now don't get me wrong, sometimes, the Internet is an awful place and I'm sure we've all been in or seen some trouble online that could have been avoided well, without social media.

However, one of the great things is that we are lucky to share stories about families in need during the holidays through Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, and thus we are able to connect with those who can provide with social media.

One of my Instagram friends posted the following about a Rockford area family that could use some help this year.
