Bought food for a family in need.
I work in a upper middle class area and it's hard to remember that we have students whose families need help.
Kids coming to school without backpacks or food, that doesn't happen in our school, in other schools, sure, but not mine.
True the population isn't a huge number, but it's more then 1 and really 1 is too many.
Each year the school puts a paper Christmas tree filled with ornaments. We "adopt" three families. These ornament are pieces of paper with items written on them that a family needs.
One family asked for, "gift card for food, socks and underwear."
My heart broke.
No, this was supposed to happen in Baltimore and in DC, not here.
I picked the ornament for a the food.
I drove to a grocery store near the school and bought a $25 gift card. $25 isn't going to get the family far. But I was going to include all the coupons from the newspapers for the weekend and hopefully that will help out
Will I do it again?: How could I not?
How much did it cost me? $25 and $2.50 for a newspaper
How much time did it take? 20 minutes to drive to the store and buy the card.
How much effort? A little bit more then other activities.
Also how can you do something good with NO Effort at all?
