For those of you who have followed me on Facebook you may remember how a year ago I was doing 50 new things for my 50th year on the planet. That year was one of the most memorable years in life. I got to do some silly things like swim in the sharks, ride an elephant and a camel. It was my attempt to feed the poor that is one of my favorite memories. I called around to some soup kitchens to volunteer and you had to come in with a group or start with some training first. I just wanted to serve and got fed up with all the red tape so I decide to take matters into my own hands.
I went to the store and bought these really cute red bag and little reindeer napkins. Then I went looking for some of my favorite foods that didn’t have to be heated etc. I bought all of the food which unfortunately included nuts. I forgot about peoples allergies and hopefully I didn’t hurt anyone in the process.
Once the bags were assembled about a week before Christmas I got in my car and drove to downtown Detroit. I drove around for several hours looking for people to give my food to. One guy looked at me strangely as I handed him some of the bags. A few days later I went back down to Detroit with my pretty red bags and looked for more homeless people. Finally after several hours I still hadn’t given all of my pretty red bags away so I drove over to the soup kitchen where they happily accepted my donation.
I pray no one choked on the nuts! Happy Holidays Everyone!
