DICKINSON (KFYR-TV) There are eight days until Christmas, and as many shoppers finish their lists and check them twice, others believe not every gift needs to be wrapped and placed under the tree.
A Dickinson family is giving their time and talents through good deeds in the days leading up to Christmas.
Starting on December 1st, the Seaks Family works on their list of good deeds, but they always keep a few days open to find new ways to help out like shoveling snow for neighbors or caroling at an assisted living home.
"Twenty-five days of giving is our new holiday tradition," says organizer Kristin Seaks. "We no longer get involved in the commercialism of Christmas. We give to others. We give our time, our talents and our resources."
You can still join in on the 25 days of giving.

This weekend, I'll show you other ways the family gives back.
