Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Snow In Portland

--by DotMatrix, posted Jan 17, 2023

We gave Oscar the monthly money for food on the 28th of November.

Last week he told me it snowed in Portland. I asked if he was warm enough. He said when he's in his sleeping bag he's plenty warm. I pressed him and he admitted he needed boots.

I said I wanted to get him a Christmas gift and set an amount for him to pick out boots and anything else he needed. He chose boots, slippers, and two mirrors for his friend who is homeless.

She is in a wheelchair and the mirrors can clip on her chair so she can navigate crossing streets more safely. I was touched that, as usual, he was thinking of how to help others too.
