Its hard in this world not to be cynical but you can try.
Try to imagine if the present you wanted most was some warm clothes.


Everyone is fighting a hard battle.

Wow, kudos to the creator of this idea (and the Amazon delivery people...), beautiful gesture.

Homelessness is such a tough subject...on the one hand, handouts generally precipitate the problem. Making it easier to live on the streets = less reason to get a job and life back together.
On the other hand, being homeless probably makes it nearly impossible to get a normal job. So many of them may not even be mentally fit for a job.

Here's another one from the New York Times that might tug at your heartstrings.

Maybe we need a thread for heartwarming videos. :-*
