Giving











“If you can't feed a hundred people, then just feed one.”
-Mother Teresa

“Hands that give also receive”
-Uknown

I've never done this before. I've never stood outside for 2 hours ringing a bell, singing Christmas carols, in the freezing cold, for a good cause. Or for any cause at all. It was an awesome experience and have officially made it a tradition. It was awesome to see people smiling at us, whether they were smiling/laughing at our singing or smiling because of all the Christmas joy we were exuding.
I don't think I've ever seen a group this big ringing that bell for the Salvation Army. If you've never done it before, you should. Have a friend volunteer with you, it makes it more fun. ;)
