Helping our neighbors…

I’m really, truly trying to be positive on this here blog.

But the other day, I was browsing Craigslist, as I frequently do, and I found this:

YOU BUY MY KIDS FOOD/I WILL WORK HARD WHAT EVER (NORTH HIGHLANDS)


Date: 2009-03-18, 12:27PM PDT

IM OUT OF FOOD, WILL WASH CLEAN COOK, HAVE AN ELDERLY PERSON I CAN TAKE CARE OF NO PROBLEM, ANY CHILDREN I CAN TAKE CARE OF NO PROBLEM.

I WILL WORK HARD, CUT GRASS, ANYTHING

Man.  I know times are tough for my family right now, but this hit me like a fist in the tummy.  I’m definitely going to reply.  I don’t have any work for them, but I know I can find a way to afford an extra bag of groceries.
Have you ever seen anything like this?
Would (or DID) you reply?

I saw something like this on the news the other day. It breaks my heart. I think that if everyone helped each other out with an extra ‘bag of groceries’ we’d all make it through this tough time together in one piece.

Wow! I haven’t seen anything like that, but if I did there is no way I would just ignore it. I probably wouldn’t have work to give them, but I’d be happy to share whatever I have. How sad there is no church or organization (like a food pantry or the Salvation Army) that they can turn to for help in their community.
