The last few weeks, I’ve been looking to volunteer at various places, food banks, homeless shelters, soup kitchens… I’ve been informed that due to low budgets some places aren’t taking on any volunteers. I’m waiting to hear from a couple of ‘maybes’ though so fingers crossed. In the meantime my 8 year old son, Finley and I have come up with a plan!
Every morning on the way to work, I pass homeless people in Birmingham City Centre, sleeping in doorways and there are many Big Issue sellers about. There are many great charities that are working hard to help people.
Finley has kindly suggested helping to make lunch boxes to hand out. Enough to fill a backpack and to provide meals, drinks and snacks for ten people. It’s not going to change the world, we know, but little things may help. Also it’ll prevent him from taking things for granted when we think of those less fortunate. So tomorrow morning is the first mission to hand out some food! Then week by week we will have new ideas to make a small difference. Peace and love!
