Holiday Time Is Charity Time

It is during the holidays that people are most inclined to consider the plight of the less fortunate and to respond in some measure to share their blessings with others.  So it is that charities also gear up at this time, working to raise money for the work they do.

I am no different.

When deciding on which homeless services to support, please also consider the work that I do here (without compensation) on this blog, and elsewhere. Although I am doing a bit better these days, I’m still only scratching by and could certainly use some financial relief.  I am now out of cash for the rest of the month and I still need to find a way to get laundry done – which costs about 5 dollars per load.  Added to my other financial obligations I now have a phone bill, a phone which I use for most of my online activities, like writing this blog and sharing information with others about homeless.  And I’ve yet to get a new pair of eye glasses which are in sore need of replacement.  I need a new prescription, as I no longer read most print – such as the signs on the bus that tell which bus is which.  A couple weeks ago I actually got on the number 2 bus, when I really needed the 7.

Any help you could send my way would be greatly appreciated.

  1. Giving really warms the heart. I am coordinating an Adopt-A-Family drive at work; we adopted 7 families. And I personally adopted 1 senior citizen. I recently blogged about it if you're interested:
