We need blankets, coats and jackets to give away. I realize that most of the people who receive this newsletter have already cleaned out their closets for us. It’s time to reach out further. How about giving blankets and coats to the poor and homeless instead of exchanging useless gifts among coworkers? It could be a team effort, instead of an opportunity for individual embarrassment. (Or am I the only one who feels that way about obligatory gift exchanges mixing with office politics?)
For blankets, it is best that people buy new blankets for themselves and give us their old ones. We need functionality not marketability.
Spread the word. Share the warmth.
