I've been known to stand up on my soapbox and shout about inumerable topics. Especially this time of year when I always get thinking about others: those in need, those who help those in need and just those who need a little extra love and encouragement. Heck, I personally fall into all three categories. We all do if you think about it hard enough.
So I wanted to shout out to a few orgs and peeps that I feel do a great job taking care of all of us this time of year:
Union Gospel Mission in Seattle
Boys & Girls Clubs of America
Big Brothers/Big Sisters
Seattle Police Department
King County Sherrif Department
Seattle Fire Deparment
It doesn't take a lot of effort or money to help another person, bring a smile to the face of someone who needs a smile, to make a difference.
Try it on. Try it twice. Try it every day between now and Xmas. Try it for eight days in a row and light some candles. Just don't not try it.
Haters go hate. Me, I'm going to help.
