I have a podcast here that I did with John Kremer, the marketing guru. He invited me to share unusual places to sell books. Take a listen and hit those streets running: goo.gl/WGTF7.
Most of us can give thanks for all the plentiful food, and “things,” we have. There are those who aren’t so lucky. There are those who live in their cars, or under bridges.
Many of these people are children, who go to school during the day, and then sleep in an alley at night.
What can we do to help these people. It is the holiday season, but these people don’t feel the spirit of joy that others have. They may not have any presents to open on Christmas Day. They may not any food to eat as well.
So, what can we do:
- Go to your local mission where the homeless spend their nights and invite one or to of them to you big feast with you family. Yes, there will be some raised eyebrows. Yes, some will try to convince you it is the wrong thing to do, but do it anyway, and you will bring joy into someone’s life.
- Go to the bridges in your area and give out some of your old clothing to those who are cold, and need warmth. You would probably take them to Goodwill anyway, and this way you know the person that got them really needed them.
- Give out you change at those at street corners. I know, many of them aren’t that bad off, but which ones? You don’t know who is conning you, or really need help. Just give out some change to everyone on the streets this holiday season.
These don’t impose on you that much, but your gesture will go a long ways towards helping someone who really is in need.
You are not forsaken.
You are not unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
