Paying It Forward: Goodwill Towards Goodwill & Others!
'Tis the season! Bells are ringing! Can you hear them? If so, chances are it's the Salvation Army folks ringing their bell for the kettle! Now my philosophy is simple on that. If they can stand their freezing their Christmas buns off, the least I can do is drop a little something in the kettle!
And our local food pantries are in need of help, so a few extra dollars at Kroger's to the Shared Harvest organization is easy. We tend more towards lots of small trips to the grocer rather than a monthly cart buster, so we chipped in to Shared Harvest a couple of times this week.
And today after church we just made a multi-trip haul to the local Goodwill on SR 123 just east of Lebanon. Roller blades we don't use, two bikes, old LPs (that's the predecessor to CDs for you young 'uns.....and CDs are what came before digital!), clothes and a bunch of other things too. Amazing what happens when you decide to declutter your life a bit!
So 'tis the season to give back to your community a bit. Pay it forward however and wherever it works for you!
A quote from our friend in North Carolina:
"I do not share my stories of paying it forward for recognition. I share them so that others might be inspired to do what they can, when they can, where they can. No more, no less." Tish Lloyd, North Carolina REALTOR®
