I am leaving gloominess behind in November, and I am going to attempt to lift as many spirits as I can reach by year's end. Though it is a favorite month of mine, it happens to also be an awfully cold month. I have decided to pack my vehicle trunk with care packages for those who are homeless or in need this season, and share what I have whenever and wherever I am able. If you have the ability, won't you join me and do the same in your town? I have decided to replenish from my local Goodwill as I need warm supplies, and also from my own knitting if I have anything extra. Goodwill often has handknit scarves and hats for only $.99, and lap throws and small blankets for $1.99 to $3.99.
What do you need in your trunk for winter conditions, especially if you live in a cold climate?
Tire chains, flares, flashlight, ice scraper, snow shoes (if you are in that kind of place), water, food, blanket, extra gloves, hat, and scarf. Oh, and an in progress knitting project, of course!
So, in addition to those supplies, which I am in the process of ensuring are all in my trunk, I am going to put in two extra scarves, 2 extra hats, 2 extra small blankets, and a little extra food of some sort so I have some to give. This year, and in years ahead, it is even more important that we reach out and help each other whenever possible.
What are your suggestions for sharing?
