Does anyone know of a website where you can go to fulfill someone's need?
I saw on the news a little boy dying of cancer, and all he wanted was a card from a police officer, and he got a lot more than just that: visits from hundreds of officers, the secret service, all kinds of cool gadgets to play with, etc. His Christmas wish went viral and the outpouring of supprt was amazing.
It made me think: I wonder how many more are out there? So does anybody know of a website/database where I could write to someone, send them something, or just do a little something to make them feel better? I don't have a lot of money right now, but I will be starting a very well-paying job soon, and when I was employed, one of my favorite things to do was to send my friends in need boxes of stuff (food, gas cards, whatever they didn't have), donate, Toys for Tots, hospital care packages, and help out my family when they needed it. I would really like to work my way up to that again, but for now, is there anywhere I can just do a little here and there? Kids, foster families, hospital patients, otherwise disadvantaged? I also loved my job at Disneyland where I helped make "magical moments, and set up experiences for kids and adults to make their Disney dreams come true- it's just who I am!! Thanks in advance.
I just gave a bunch of unopened bath products to a small shelter for battered women and children. They were very happy. I told my roommate about it and she also put some stuff together for a donations...soaps, shampoos etc. Salvation Army won't take these kinds of donations but a shelter will. Most of my donations go to Children Inc. I support a child in the Appalachian mountains. I also give to Cup of Joe for a Joe...which will give a cup of coffee to a service man or women overseas. They will sometime e-mail a Thank You from Afghanistan and Iraq. That feels nice. I try very hard to save money to give to charities that friends are doing, 10k runs etc. Donations don't need to be big to be appreciated.
