An 80-year-old woodworker makes Christmas gifts
Xmas is mostly about gifting, yet some people find it difficult to buy presents for the christmas. Luckily, there is one good guy who actually resembles Santa Claus. About James Annis, an 80-year-old carpenter who has been making toys for underprivileged kids for the past 50 years.
Annis gives the Sanford Salvation Army over 300 toys. He uses donated wood pieces to create his beautiful designs, like the wood vehicles and dolls he sells, but he buys for the painting and tires himself, which costs him about $1,000 year. Because he was raised without gifts of his own, Annis is motivated to undertake unselfish deeds of charity to prevent other children from going through the same experience.
„My father worked, but he didn’t earn much. With poor children, a large Xmas is challenging, says Annis. „I adore it when individuals inquire about my compensation for creating these products. When I see children grinning, I remind them that’s when I get paid. The carpenter has been doing this for five decades, and he has no intention of stopping any relatively soon. For as much as he can, he wishes to maintain making kids happy. I look forward to being able to do this until my toes cuddle up, he grins.
For the past 50 years, 80-year-old craftsman James Annis has made toys for kids truly needy.
Every year, he gives roughly 300 handcrafted toys to the Sanford Food Pantry.
