Jason Wright recently joined Glenn to talk about his book “Christmas Jars” and the real-life movement of people saving whatever they can to help out a friend or neighbor in need. A Christmas jar can be anything you use to collect spare change throughout the year so you can give the money to someone who needs extra help in time for the holidays.

The “Christmas Jars” novel was released 12 years ago, and a film version is slated to start production in January.

“A lot of people in in this audience started to collect Christmas jars,” Glenn said. “I know [my family] did, as a kid, and it was a great tradition.”
