Generosity

By HobbitDave
After a local appeal for donations of unused clothes, books and childrens toys for gifts at Christmas to the homeless and less fortunate. In this rural area nearly 50 black bin liners of these items were received and are here being prepared for distribution.
V.4 of the Socially Distanced wrapping of some of the gifts. This was added later.

Good community spirit here, Dave 👍 There's a shop in our uptown shopping centre, which closed down a few months ago, now re-opened to accept food donations for those less fortunate than the rest of us 😃

Wonderful to do
'there is still a lot of good in this world!"

There's more good than evil. It's just we hear more about the evil side. "Good" rarely makes the news and we are very quick to complain about injustices but very slow to comment on random acts of kindness.

Well documented and much needed.
