Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Moving


--by danielleraubert, posted Apr 22, 2015
So packing is the worst. We are in day two of packing up our townhouse and while I want to take everything home with us, we set up boxes for donations.

So far we have boxes full with clothes, jackets, snow gear (we are in upstate NY) and food. All of these boxes will be going to local families in our neighborhood.

It feels good to be given these things away to people that need them more then we do.
