As another year wraps up I thought I’d take a moment to mention a few of the people and organizations making the world a better place. Yes, even after the indescribable acts of the past few days, we need, now more than ever, to focus on the good that surrounds us.
Some of the organizations are local and some faraway but all deserve high praise for their vision, commitment, dedication and generous spirit. Take an opportunity to fill yourself with the warmth and love generated by these stories.
- Rotary International’s End Polio Now
- Operation Warm
- Pure Water for the World
- The Dictionary Project
- NABA – Northeast Association for the Blind at Albany
- The Century House Enjoy One, Share One program
- Vascular Birthmark Foundation
- Hats For A Purpose
- The Animal Support Project
- Best Friends
Greetings of the season to all my friends and family.
There are a lot of happy, smiling faces out there this week, as the beautiful and colorful Hats For A Purpose were distributed to our local schools to help warm the hearts and heads of kids who needed them. This year’s effort by so many creative and skilled crafters almost doubled the number of hats from earlier years. School administrators wanted everyone to know that some children never get anything new so receiving a handmade ‘just for them’ hat was a real experience and one they will never forget. From one school nurse, “Thanks to everyone – the hats and scarves were beautiful.”
Here are just a few of the hats that made kids smile this week. Love and appreciation to all of you who made this possible.
