Thomas Morstead’s What You Give Will Grow will be partnering with Best Christmas Ever to #GiveChristmas to six deserving families in the Greater New Orleans area.
While in Minnesota during Super Bowl week in February of 2018, Thomas met a rep from Best Christmas Ever and was inspired by the organization’s work. Knowing the holidays can be a difficult time for families who have had a member lose a job or fell ill, he wanted to partner with Best Christmas Ever to #GiveChristmas to six local families.

About Best Christmas Ever:
The vision of Best Christmas Ever© began with a single dad battling Ulcerative Colitis (UC) in 2010. It was Christmas Eve and he had just finished wrapping a few gifts he picked up at the convenience store for his son. Life had certainly been difficult for them that year. Hearing a knock on the door, he answered to see three of his relatives with huge bags full of gifts. He was taken aback by the surprise and their thoughtfulness as his relatives took what was likely to be the worst Christmas ever to the Best Christmas Ever. Wanting to pay it forward, the recipient, Don, and his lifelong best friend rallied a small group of people together to give a Best Christmas Ever© surprise to a lucky family just as he had received. Every year, the number of families on the receiving end of the Best Christmas Ever© has doubled. In 2017, over 700 nominations received and 100 families received the Best Christmas Ever©. One hundred additional families received $250 Target gift cards and 100 families received $1,000 grant for completing the Dave Ramsey Financial Peace University Course.
