Creating an Angel Tree


Set up an angel tree to collect presents for children who otherwise would go without Christmas gifts. The tree can be fake or real but should have plenty of branches for hanging the children's "wish" angels.

Step 3

Hang wish lists on the tree with items children want. Include the sex, age and wish but not the name of any child. Encourage people to take a list, buy the gift and put the present under the tree.

Step 5

Top the tree with a beautiful angel topper or a shiny star. Pick a tree topper that lights up so your tree shines from a distance.

Step 6

Place the tree in a frequented location so people see it. Collect donations before Christmas and give them to a local charity that helps children.
