Can You Spare Stuff


I've been away from home but not the news of the terrible flooding in Missouri. This morning's mail brought a call for help for a family who lost everything. The Springfield chapter of the international organization, Freecycle, is adopting a family that basically needs well, everything.

I've written about Freecycle before because I love the idea behind exchanging or giving away stuff you no longer want to need in order to keep it out of overfilled landfills. E-mail me if you want the link to those who are helping.

This is good Sheila, usually so local org like Salvation Army will collect stuff and send it to people in need, if not, i will try your way cause I am fat enough that my closet is full of smaller stuff.

Oh, just so you know, this "TYPICAL WHITE PERSON" is having loads of fun these days.

This is a brilliant idea and a lovely gesture to help families affected by the flooding Sheila. We have Freecycle over here in the U.K.
