I find joy giving a person a hand up. So for an entire year, every year I would put ten spot in envelope and send it a random address. Sorry I don't recall the year. It doesn't matter.
So I gave out $500 or so. I'm clueless what any of these people did with there gift. My reasoning was simple. To put a simple smile on there face.
This year I'll be doing something different and hope for same result. A simple smile. This year my local charities will be the “Hope House” which is a place they give mainly out free clothing to the needy. But they give out other items.
Not much in food line. I understand they can make up a bag of food for two days for a family. There main thing is non food. Such as toilet paper, paper towel, shampoo, toothpaste, brushes and etc.
So today I took out some band aids and donate.
I bought seven boxes. Plus I got four and plan to keep them to give to put in my children stockings for Holidays.
Yes I'm getting an early start on “Christmas”
Like my Christmas gift they were also bought at local mom and pop business.
I'm going though the alphabet, this pay period was letter “B” and I bought Band-aids. Which went to the “Hope House” Next pay period I'm thinking of getting either some coffee and or cleanser, taking it to our local food bank. They don't seem to have much support.
So every month I'll be take a little something to the Hope House or local food bank.
Coffee is on
