Want to run something passed y'all, input please!
Today while driving around town I realized how many homeless people are on Colorado springs. We saw a guy by the one Walmart. Very young (early 20's), dirty, shivering, and just plain down on his luck. He was holding a sign. "cold, and hungry. Want a sleeping bag to stay warm. But anything helps" so the wife reminded me we have an extra sleeping bag good to 0* Fahrenheit at the house. So we ran home and got it and took it all the way back to him. His eyes sparkled and tested up as we gave it to him. We felt good.
One of my soldiers, was driving in town today and came across an older woman sleeping in a sleeping bag along the road. Even though they live paycheck to paycheck, they went and got her a meal. They feel good that they helped someone in need.
Giving is contagious.
My thought is this. Why don't we as a group get things that they may need to survive, not just food, but clothing, sleeping bags whatever you don't use any more and go out together and hand it to the less fortunate? Give back to your fellow man. What do y'all think?
2008 F250 6.4 - a little of this, a dash of that and soon you have made a truck the way Ford should have made it!
