When I was a young adult (19 or so), I had the opportunity to take part in the most amazing experience involving the homeless here in our town. We have a park where many of those who are without homes gather, to enjoy friendship and take a quick nap. It’s overwhelming to see how many people gather there. It was nearing Thanksgiving Day and a good friend of mine and I decided that year, that we were going to make a difference, even if it was in a small way.
We came up with a plan that included bread, two turkeys, a bag full of condiments and bottles of water. We were young and on a limited budget and we had to keep costs down, while still making a large impact. We cooked the turkeys and assembled turkey sandwiches. We then bagged them in plastic ziplocs and paired them with a bottle of water. You can only guess what we did next. We headed down to the park where the homeless gathered on Thanksgiving Day and we handed out turkey sandwiches and water to every.single.person. at the park that day!
It was an amazing feeling to see the surprised looks on their faces and the gratitude that they displayed. I learned that year that there was really no difference between them and I. Some of them were just dealt a bad card in life and they were attempting to make due with what little they had. Although it was a gift to them, it was perhaps more of a gift to me, and one that will stay with me for the rest of my life.
It was a small gesture, but it made a big impact on all of us!
Now that you know my story, I want to share a really awesome new app available for both Iphone and Android devices that allows you to not only shop for your best gift ever, but also organizes your loyalty and gift cards! I’m always digging through my wallet every time I go into Gymboree or the grocery store and with this new app, I was able to store them all on my Iphone and now I can access them all with just a push of my screen! That’s seriously cool, and trust me when I say…you want this app!
