DONATIONS FOR THE HOMELESS
PAY IT FORWARD!!
(ask me how you can donate)
Helping the homeless is something I’m very passionate about. I walk the walk on a daily basis.
And I make it a point to DO for the less fortunate.
The homeless are people too! They’re your cross walk neighbor, that you pass every day.
They’re a Vet, who sacrificed a lot serving our country. They’re someone’s mother, brother, father, child..etc.
Add a little joy to their life in the simplest of ways. By donating something they need & can use/enjoy.
If they ask for money, by all means offer to by them a meal. Don’t pass them by as if they’re a nobody.
They’re someone’s somebody!
A little bit of kindness goes a long way.
The smiles, and hugs and many Thank you’s always makes my heart smile.
