    Letter in the mail today that made me feel great.

    Hey all, I have not been able to detect much lately since I am working full time and going to school full time. On campus there is a section of a bulletin board for a project called Shoes That Fit, which are requests for clothes and shoes for local needy kids. One girl had the same first name as my niece, so I felt I had to do something. I have never really shopped for girls clothes, especially for a third grader whom I have never met and don't know anything about her but her basic size. I ended up spending quite a bit since I live in the Poconos and the winters get snowy and cold. I dropped off the bag of clothes on campus never thinking I would get a letter or anything. Well I did and it made me feel so good. I wish I could have seen her face as she got the clothes and jacket. Everyone should try to do this for at least one child this season. I promise it will make you feel wonderful!

    You just can't help but love kids huh? You can be having a crappy day and read a letter like that and next thing you know you are wearing a cheesy grin. Way to go bud!

    Jason,
    Just let me say that you are an awesome human being and I am in awe of you. I wish that each and every person that reads your post will get the real spririt of Christmas (or the holidays) and give to the less fortunate around us. There are plenty of people this year that need our help in our communities. I have adopted two senior citizens for the holidays this year. I know that everyone jumps in for the kids, but there are so many older people that need our help too. Thank you Jason for helping. May you be blessed ten fold for what you have done.
