It's cold in North Carolina. And I'm not ready for it.
This is what's happening outside my front door. Not okay.
Today I am thankful for a warm, welcoming place to call home. A cold snap has hit the South, and it's frigid days and nights like these that I cannot get thought out of my head that there are many out there who are not able to simply stay warm. It breaks my heart. Today I am especially grateful for a warm meal, a home with heat, and a cozy blanket to snuggle up under when I get in bed tonight.
To me these things are necessities, and these "necessities" are not available to all. I've done a little research and am really wanting to donate my unworn sweatshirts and "old" fleece jackets that I seem to have a million of. I'm thinking of getting involved in the Raleigh Rescue Mission coats & blankets drive. Have you ever been involved with an organization that has done a similar collection?
How do you like to give back during the holidays? I always love to have new ideas!
