Actress Candace Cameron Bure: ‘Christmas Isn’t Cancelled’
By Movieguide® Staff
Though Candace Cameron Bure is generous year round, Christmas time is an excellent opportunity for the Christian actress to speak openly about how she and others can bless people in need this holiday season.
“Christmas isn’t canceled. We still want to be there to help. So we’re asking you to help us rescue Christmas to serve those in need,” the actress told The Christian Post.
Christmas holds a special place in the actress’ heart.
“Christmas is my favorite time of year for so many reasons. The biggest reason is that we celebrate Jesus Christ,” Bure said. “It can be a hard season for so many people and that’s why the work that I help do with The Salvation Army is so important — because there are so many people in need, especially during the holidays.”
This isn’t the first time Bure spoke about her work with The Salvation Army.
“I have been working with The Salvation Army as their ambassador for a few years now, but it is an organization that I have been contributing to since I was a little girl,” Bure told Movieguide. “They help over 23 million Americans every year and they are on the front lines with COVID.”
Bure said that the work of The Salvation Army is especially crucial during the holiday season and is a time for people to share the love of Christ with others.
“While it’s a time of giving and should be a time of cheer, it can be very, very heartbreaking, especially for people who are struggling. Whether that’s financial, whether it’s just circumstances that they’re in — homelessness, needing food, just needing help and day care, and now with the pandemic, of course, that need has gone up,” Bure said.
“My honest wish is for people to know Jesus Christ. It always is. It’s my goal in life. It’s my mission in life. I love people and I want to share with them the best news I’ve ever known in my entire life.
“That’s the good news of Jesus Christ and there’s no better time, there’s never a bad time, but there’s no easier time to share the Good News with people than at Christmas time because it’s the whole reason we celebrate.”
