Tis the season

Postby grittracing » Sun Dec 18, 2011 12:14 pm

I know most of us help out where and when we can. but I thought I would just send out a reminder. we all have Nice cars (hobby cars) meaning we have more than a lot of people.and we need to give back to those who can not get for themself. for the last few years I have donated clothes to the local shelter of to purple heart.

this year giving hit a little closer to home. A guy I went to school with was found living in a make shift shelter he had made. here is a link to the story

Anarchy paint ball team ( http://anarchymi.webs.com/ ) had a food drive going on when I brought up the idea of combining it along with the clothing drive. about 3 weeks after both was started, I had heard about James' story and gave the mens clothing to his family to give to him. more clothes to a local charity " Cots " and more to the Puple heart. the food went to a few food charities.

I say all of this not to get your praise. but just to remind you to give where you can this season. these are hard times. we have alot ! even if it is just clothes on our backs and a warm meal.

Please give where and when you can.

Amen to that! My family is truly blessed and it makes us feel good to reach out and help those less fortunate or down on their luck. Thanks for the reminder!
