The holiday season is upon us...dare I say it- CHRISTMAS. Most of us are planning Christmas celebrations, dinners, and parties, mapping out our travel routes to be with family/friends, and shopping for gifts.
What so many of us don't understand, is that there are numerous people struggling to make ends meet, or just trying to survive during the holiday season (and the rest of the year).
Each year at this time I try to donate to charities that help the less fortunate. I don't have a lot of money, so this year I came up with the idea..."Take it, if you need it". I live in a cold country, freezing temps, high winds, ice and snow, (in winter), so I am knitting hats and scarves that I will leave in random locations around my city, for those in need. If you don't knit, you can buy hats, scarves and mittens at dollar stores, and randomly place them around your town.
In a warm climate you can "donate" weather appropriate items.
Don't forget to add a note, "Take it if you need it".
