Our local Craigslist has a FREE section... Today someone posted a picture of a small box bottom full of miscellaneous food. They wrote that it wasn't much - but insisted that it go to a house with NOTHING in the cupboards and must have children. It was very touching. It got some RE: NICE jobs, and I also posted how I admired that person and felt I could do something similar. So...I went through our cabinets and found even MORE stuff that did not make it to the food pantry the first go round....and put it in a box and made a list and posted it. I'll tell ya what. It's really not much - it's mosty jello and there is enough in that box for a meal or two if someone knows how to stretch a meal - but it's not much. I'm just encouraging everyone in OUR Craigslist community to follow this even if you don't have much - 1/2 of something is still better than nothing. It's really getting tough out there.... If you can - maybe consider it. I'm also going to go through my Beanie Babies and see what I can give for Christmas presents to parents who have nothing to give this year. I know it's not much - but it would be 1 gift. What do you think? Kids maybe don't want or like Beanie Babies any more?
