  1. No stopping sign… and yet there are people who do stop and give a helping hand ! And yet there are so many who do just walk by and don’t stop !

  2. Saw your interview on ABC2news just now. Great work. Keep it up. Some friends and I are working with the homeless in the Essex area – visiting camps, taking food, clothes, and building friendships. We’re even trying to find a way to open a temporary shelter of some sort for the winter. Would love to join forces with you or at least be a support. If you are interested, let me know . . .

  5. Just saw the interview. Had to DVR it, the kid gets up too early to stay up late. It was fantastic!! You looked great! Can we still be friends now that you’re all famous and stuff?

  9. I missed the interview, I fell asleep. I think it’s great that you are bringing awareness to this issue. I have been chastized by others for giving money to the homeless people I see on the street. I recall one incident in particular where I told a homeless person who was “loitering” outside of a Royal Farm Store that I would give him my change when I came out. As I was handing him my change, another patron sarcastically commented that I was contributing to the problem because he assumed the homeless man was going to use the money to get drunk or high.

    I responded that it wasn’t my place to judge what the homeless man was going to do with the money because that’s God’s job.

    When I used to work downtown, my coworkers would also chastize me for giving spare change or a few ones to the homeless people I saw.

    In this economy, you just never know if the tables could turn so I try to help where/when I can.

  10. thanks for stopping by sherry and thank you for lending a hand to those in need around you. spare change may not be the ultimate answer for the underlying problems many of these people face…but it definitely goes a long way and means SOMETHING to the person receiving it…as well as to you.

    we can’t be everything to everyone…but we can be compassionate to those in need. helping comes in many shapes and sizes.

    again..thank you. happy holidays!
