    One Year of Firsts: Too Late to Donate?

    Those who can, do. Those who can do more, volunteer. ~Author Unknown


    I'm just going to fess up. I  blew this FIRST. 

    It was a day of service in honor of Martin Luther King. I knew I couldn't volunteer today but decided for the first time I'd contribute blankets to Operation Gotcha Covered. The blankets were being collected, cleaned and distributed to the homeless and families in need. Well, I took my blankets to the drop off point but found out the collection time has passed. This very sweet  firefighter took my blankets anyway.

    While we are all thinking of those suffering in Haiti, there are also too many folks right here struggling for food and shelter.   

    I hope my blankets still find their way to someone who needs them.

    Good intentions. Bad execution.
