A-Z Challenge J=JOY
I looked at lots of different definitions of what JOY means, and I read a survey where people responded to what JOY is to them, none of that seemed to fit into what we do here on Bridge and Beyond for the Homeless, nor fit into what is it to be homeless.
I feel JOY when I knit or crochet and I know the end product is going to help someone. I feel JOY when I open beautiful donations from the many caring hearts and helping hands that donate to Bridge and Beyond. I feel JOY when I hand delivery these donations to the various shelters or to Rae who passes out necessary items when she delivers hot meals on Saturday mornings.
I feel confident saying all the good folks who've helped by donating to Bridge and Beyond also feels that same JOY as they spend their time knitting, crocheting, looming, or quilting to help care for someone else.
I believe along with our warm items: hats, scarves, mittens, slippers etc we also give some JOY to those who receive the donations. That's why our mission here on Bridge and Beyond is handmade, I believe the JOY we feel as we're crafting our items transcends to those who wear our knitted, crocheted, or loomed items.
and go knit something to help spread JOY to someone in need. Can you join us?
All donations regardless of size and number are valued. All donations are appreciated. The Power of One is awesome, and when we work together The Power of One becomes The Power of Many.
