For those that have the basics of a warm bed, bathroom and meals – count your lucky stars. Giving back to family and friends in an emergency will always be in us to do everywhere on Earth.
The “other people” in dire need, that we do not know personally, are here in the U.S., caravan asylum-seekers, and refugees in The Middle East (who rarely get coverage because of the hundreds of killed/jailed journalists).
All of the “other people” have their own personal story, either true or a desperate little lie that works to generate enough money for the ache in the belly.
Buddy, if you can spare a dime, here in our area, please think about Women’s Resource Center. A potluck every other month at The Rochester Hotel is where you can pitch in 35 bucks toward a group of local people needing a one-time chance for help.
Ya got more to spare, do local and global giving year-around. Feels good, promise.
