Paying It Forward

January 26th, 2016 at 05:04 pm

Simply put, I'm so very grateful for all the things I have. I realize that I am very blessed and that there are others less fortunate. I created an event on Facebook called Pay It Forward. I invited my friends to join me in creating blessing bags for the homeless community in our area. Every month I will pick a different cause. So far, I have 13 people who have committed to contributing and I am really excited to be able to help and my friends and family/friends are very generous. Next month we are collecting baby items to donate to a women's homeless shelter and in March we will probably collect white cotton socks for the men and women serving in the U.S. armed forces. In August, we will do school supplies. Any other ideas?

    Very sweet of you to take up a cause to help others.
    Donate books to a library?

    Curious where you got the idea to donate white socks to service members? My husband doesn't wear them as part of his uniform in the Army. They can now wear black for physical training too.

    I read that there is a great need for them for those deployed overseas. I will verify this information. Thanks for letting me know.
