"It is not the shilling I give you that counts, but the warmth that it carries with it from my hand." -- Miguel de Unamuno y Jugo

Idea of the Week

"I was running late for my sign language class, so I skipped dinner. Instead, I stopped at my local corner shop to pick up a snack. As I was waiting for the bus, I noticed a homeless man sitting under a doorway. It was really cold and it was raining and as I looked at him, I realized how lucky I am to know I can head home and have hot food and a warm bed and a hug from my mum... I'm not sure why, but I decided I wanted to go talk to to him. I went up to him and we talked a little while and I gave him my chocolate, drink and the other stuff I had just picked up at the corner shop. It wasn't a massive donation, but it was pretty cool to be able to give something to this warm and friendly man that wasn't the last few pennies at the bottom of my pocket. And it was great to have a smile to return."

Today's Tip: Find a way to really make someone's day, perhaps even letting someone go in front of you at the grocery store, or fill up someone's tank of gas or even take out the trash for an elderly neighbor. The point is do something today, and please come back here and share.
