For many of us, the realities of the pandemic era are hitting the hardest as we careen toward the apex of the holiday season.

To break up the pattern, we might as well also binge on some feel-good stories about a range of artists who are stepping up with acts of kindness for the heartbreakingly complicated 2020 holiday season.

We saw similar moves surrounding Thanksgiving, including inspired charity efforts from the Cactus Jack Foundation and more.

Below, peep some Xmas 2020 highlights from the charity canon.
