“Aye. A cold thing, charity can be, when what’s given is given grudgingly.” Katie Flynn, Strawberry Fields
It is a very common sight to see people giving graciously during the Christmas/ New Years Season. The homeless people get treated to soup on a colder day and many poorer families receive food and clothes hampers. I applaud anyone who takes time out to give regardless of the motives of the giver. When a hungry child receives a meal, it is a blessing just to see that child belly full and smiling again. It is an unspoken common feeling that when children hurt everyone hurts no matter age, ethnicity and class.
It is fantastic that we give people food, water, clothing and shelter
but please remember the poor eat outside of the holiday season.
I know that you are happy to help this time around the year
because it encourages giving for all these jingle bells reasons.
