Thanks again to the ladies and gentleman from El Pelo Studio for donating clothing to my cause.

Every little bit helps, especially now, during these cold winter months, many people within our community and also in the townships have to go without the extra layer of clothing. Most of them have to get up before sunrise to be on time for work  and the children often go to school without warm clothes, some even without shoes. These are desperate times and all donations are appreciated.

Please open your heart like these wonderful people at El Pelo Studio. I can’t tell you how many times Marinda texts me during a month…sometimes she receives just one bag of clothes, sometimes there are so many donations that I struggle to fit it all in my car. It doesn’t matter…..as I said, all donations, big or small, has the ability to make a difference in someone’s life. Because Leorentia gave baby clothes, some little baby will not have to go to bed in just a diaper….he will sleep through for once and his poor parents can get some rest. Because Marinda’s Mom donated clothes, the baby’s parents can be properly dressed for a job interview…

One never knows, but that one small item can change the life of another person dramatically.

Those of us who live in comfort are often blind to the needs of others. We have become so accustomed to our own well-being that we forget how bad it can be in the world. It is only when you go out into the townships and into the areas within our own communities where poverty is rife, that we can understand just how blessed we are.

If you feel you can afford to donate something, take a look at the list of needs below and help me make this winter more bearable for those less fortunate.
