This year my family members are asking for my holiday “wishlist” and it seems that every year my list gets shorter. I have so much and really need so little. Other than world peace, a stable economy, a functional government and some good wine, I really don’t need much.
What I do wish for this holiday season is for everyone in the world to be warm. I see people on the street in tattered and torn clothes asking for food. I see our local mission full of homeless families. I see children without coats. We can’t keep everyone warm but by donating a jacket, a blanket, a hat, or a pair of socks, at least one more person will be warm.
This year, Foot Traffic is donating socks to a local shelter near our organization. It isn’t “global warming”, but it feels good knowing that we have helped someone be a bit warmer this holiday season.
