Each year an ederly Pennsylvania man puts a Christmas outside of his home.
However, he does not adorn it with tassels, bells, lights, or traditional ornaments of any sort. Instead, he hangs bags full of essential items that the less fortunate are always in need of during the cold months of winter. Things like socks, shoes, personal hygiene, snacks and so much more are packed into separate bangs.
The tree is totally packed with plastic bags hanging low because they are so full of items the old man had to give.
The best part about it all is that he just asks people who are in need to come by his place and pick up whatever they may need – no strings attached.
People understand the good-will behind the tree and respect the desire of the old man with a big heart! This kind of gesture is so important in the colder months of the year, when the homeless and less fortunate may find themselves stuck sleeping outside.
These kind of selfless acts are what people love to see during Christmas. It’s clear the old man gets a warm heart by sharing what he can with those in need.
Perhaps his actions will inspire you to make a small difference in your community. There are donation boxes for clothing to contribute to, soup kitchens with daily dinners where you could help serve food to the homeless, or maybe you could just donate to a charity that you know does good work. Anything to share the gift of happiness and love is worth so much more than you might think!
