Do you help your fellow man?

Do you help our fellow man not only during the Holiday's, but all year long?

 

My wife and I help people all the time.

 

But, we are very selective on who and how.

 

There are people who have their hands out all the time.

 

We help people who are really in need and they are easy to find.

 

They are the ones that ask for:

 

Blankets

hats and gloves

Jackets

linens

UNDERWEAR!!!

People like these are truly in need and are trying to help themselves.

 

Those asking for higher ticket items such as Ipods, $40--$60 video games and other high ticket items to us feel like they are taking advantage of our generosity.

 

WE took on a family of 6.  The list above is much of what they asked for.  Each child, all under 10, made out their own list and not toys were on the list.

 

$500 later, everyone will find all they have asked for, PLUS the kids will each find a nice toy and parents will find additional gift cards.

We researched this family ourselves and know why they are truly in need.  We will follow how they are doing through the year and hopefully help them back on their feet.

 

 

Please, remember to help your fellow man, all year long...especially those who really are in need.

AND, the family has no idea who is helping them.
