MAKE A DIFFERENCE DAY
Make A Difference Day is a day to do something to help others. There are countless ways this can be celebrated. I went about this as logically as possible and visited the website to find local events that were being held today in honor of the holiday. I was surprised to find quite a few, go Metro Detroit! I found one that fit the best into my lifestyle (aka – something I could do sans baby on my oh-so-little free time). I found out that a local senior community by my workplace was collecting food for less fortunate children in the area. I e-mailed the coordinator and got a list of what they were looking for to ensure I was giving them things they needed most. Then I set off to my favorite shopping place, Target. I gave myself a budget of $30 and strived to get as many of the items on the list as I could. Here are the goods:
I only went a teensy bit over my budgeted amount, but I was impressed with what I was able to get. Even the cashier complimented me on my mad shopping skills! Next it was off to the senior living establishment to drop off the food:
I went in and am happy to report that I filled the box with my spoils:
It makes me happy to help out locally and know that my donation will be used to help those who really need it. Everyone can make a difference!
