One Warm Coat

In light of the Christmas season, my family decided to become part of a charity known as OneWarmCoat. We are asking for anyone and everyone to donate winter clothing throughout the month of December. In life, we are taught to give, to share, to show kindness. We are taught through our Savior to give willingly for many reasons, but the reason I like best is because of Love.

Give generously to him and do so without a grudging heart; then because of this the Lord your God will bless you in all your work and in everything you put your hand to. ~Dueteronomy 15:10

Although, my family is accepting donations throughout the month of December, we scheduled a one day donation drop off point offering cookies, hot chocolate or coffee to anyone who donated on that scheduled day.

Unfortunately, the turn-out was pretty poor. Only a couple of people brought donations, which was somewhat of a discouragement to me. I feel blessed for the kindness of these two families. After praying about the lack of giving, I am refreshed in knowing that God is working in our lives and goodness will prevail.

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13

With happiness, I am hoping to schedule another day in January in a bigger city so maybe we will get closer to our goal of 100 coats. A BIG thank you to the two families that donated. Please know that your donations are a blessing and so are each one of you. @onewarmcoat #warmamillion #igavewarmth
