It took very little effort and seemed to bring him such joy just doing what is right.

a pop-top can of fruit or fruit cocktail
a pop-top can of Vienna sausage
a small can of juice
a package of cheese and crackers, or peanut butter and crackers
a napkin and plastic fork
a moist towelette
one all-day bus pass
change for a local phone call
a card with community contact phone numbers (crisis clinic, food bank, salvation army)
a coupon for a free shower at the local YMCA
Create and carry a few of these bags in your car and the next time you come to a stop light with a homeless person holding a sign................ you will have something wonderful to share and bring hope to those in need without having to be concerned that you will give them money that could be used for something you do not want to support.

Audrey Hepburn (1929-1993)For attractive lips,
Speak words of kindness.
For lovely eyes,
Seek out the good in people.
For a slim figure,
Share your food with the hungry.
For beautiful hair,
Let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.
Walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone.
People, even more than things, have to be restored,
renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed;
Never throw out anybody.
Remember, if you need a helping hand,
You'll find one at the end of your arm.
As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands,
One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears,
The figure that she carried, or the way she combs her hair.
The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes,
Because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.
The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole,
But true beauty of a woman is reflected in her soul.
It is the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows,
And the beauty of a woman with passing years-only grows!
