Helping out Camino businesses at year-end....

Year of past OR future Camino
somewhere between "not enough" and "way too many"
May I first say that the OP is NOT looking for "likes" or any other reaction. Because that is not what this is about. Thank you!

If....If...you have something to spare in your Christmas stocking might I suggest something? (And, none of the below has asked me for my support nor do I have any vested interest in their success.) And, to amplify.....

@Kiwi-family post (https://www.caminodesantiago.me/community/threads/have-you-been-married-a-long-time.69023/) on long-standing marriages got me thinking. It seems there are a lot of kids and grandkids of members who might be at a loss as to what to buy for their elders.

Well, how about this? - - no material Christmas gifts of dubious value to you but of great value to those who seek to serve us in Spain. Just share the links with your kids. (We had great success with this a year ago. Kids were happy to help...and relieved of the burden of figuring out what to get us!)

@Robo already made the case for the Forum here:
