Make sure no child goes without a present under their tree this Christmas

Carabin Shaw created a virtual Angel Tree to help 8,000 kids this Christmas

SAN ANTONIOCan you believe Christmas is almost here, and it snowed in Texas this year??

Before you start stressing out about Christmas shopping... just remember that this season is also about giving back, and making a difference to those in need.

Together we can make this Christmas special for kids in need in the San Antonio area.

Brighten up a child's Christmas, thanks to the Salvation Army "Angel Tree"


For more than 18 years, the Angel Tree Program has been providing gifts to children all over the world.

Each year thousands of children are placed on the list to receive a Christmas gift.

To make life easier... Carabin Shaw Law Firm has partnered with The Salvation Army to create a virtual "Angel Tree" website to help people give gifts without having to go shopping themselves.

We came up with the idea of AngelTreeSanAntonio.org, and essentially you click on an angel on the virtual tree. Instead of going shopping to a mall you can instantly give, and Salvation Army will do everything for you, and deliver the gift.
