As we head into the week of Christmas and Hanakkuh , take a moment to think of what each of us does have. Then think of someone less fortunate than us.
As I have heard over and over again, this movement is for the betterment of the 99%, so why not start in your own neighborhood.
Bake some cookies or a loaf of bread and bring it to a neighbor who has no family. Knit a scarf for that homeless guy you pass everyday. Pick up a couple of coloring books and crayons at the dollar store and drop them off at the local shelter for some kids. Offer an hour or two to that single mom down the block so she can get a minute of free time. Rake the leaves of the man who can't do it on his own anymore.
There are so many ways to help make a tiny difference in the lives of others that don't cost very much. Of course all the core issues will still be here in the New year, but right now why not spread a little message of Good Will during this holiday season.
Every action does not need to be so grand and newsworthy. Sometimes the ones that make the most difference are looking us right in the face.
