Small Action Stories 2

Last year I found an article from a 2006 edition of Guideposts. In this article a woman shared how she began to knit for charity 10 years earlier. She did originally to help recover from some grief, but soon she grew to enjoy the knitting. She started to get together and knit sweaters for charity. As they worked together and knit, they were all encouraged.

Soon others joined in, not only in their town, but all across the USA. In ten years 300,000 sweaters had been made and given to charities all over the world. Because one woman started to knit with friends, 300,000 sweaters got to kids who needed them.

Is there something that you do with friends? Volunteer together at a food pantry? Make blankets for charity? Whatever it is, know that you are contributing to making the world a better place. Small actions done together make for even greater impact. Keep it up.
