I started to think about this after going to a dollar store.
If you can buy a pair of gloves for a dollar or a scarf or a winter hat, it should be easy and affordable to keep kids in our communities warm in the cold temps.
A simple purchase of hats, scarves and gloves to be given to your local Church (The clergy people know who needs them) or to the office in your local public school because the Teachers know which kids need to stay warm and can't afford the items.
Instead of Christmas gifts, I would much rather spend money on this, and would love it if my friends did it instead of buying me gifts this year.
Please submit your own ideas on how people can make a difference in their own communities.
