Tis’ the Season for Holiday cheer! Tis’ also the season for crowded shopping centers, financial stress, and an endless list of “to-do’s”. As Christmas Day draws closer and closer, it can feel as though the holiday spirit gets lost in the shuffle. Frustrated, some of us find ourselves turning into a modern day Scrooge. Bah Humbug! But wait! Nobody likes a Scrooge. Besides, you are better than that! All it takes to make the shift back into the Holiday spirit is to turn our hearts and hands to those who are suffering. Indeed, there is no better gift than the gift of service to our fellows in need.
Of course, there are so many people in our community with whom the holidays bring about more pain and suffering than joy. This reality is especially true for the homeless who are forced to endure the unpredictable winter weather conditions. The frigid cold is of course intensified by the profound isolation and despair the homeless often feel. Often, as we are shopping, we may run across one of our Homeless friends. How often are they greeted by the thousands of people that pass them by? How often are they treated with dignity, respect, compassion? Indeed, during a time of Holiday Spirit, the homeless are often the most forgotten of all.
WARM THEIR HEARTS
Surely, the homeless community deserves more. They deserve to feel wanted and they deserve to feel warm. That is why A Better Weigh Lifestyle is proud to take part of the Warm Their Heart’s project. The goal of this mission is to provide durable winter wear to the homeless. The comfort and warmth that comes from new winter clothing and supplies has a profound impact to those who are struggling to survive a life with no shelter. And a gift of this magnitude has a far greater impact than warmth alone. When we show our homeless community our compassion with acts of service, we show them we care, and most importantly, we show them they matter!
Here at A Better Weigh Lifestyles we believe strongly that it is our responsibility to serve others. We are also believe in the strength of our community and the greatness each of you continue to be! Our ask this Holiday Season is to join us in our mission. Remember, any act of service has a strong impact. To join the Warm Their Hearts project, contact us at A Better Weigh Lifestyle to arrange a drop-off or pick-up. Cash donations are also welcome!
