A hot meal, a shower and warm socks can mean the difference between life and death for children on the streets.
Be involved. Be the change.
Be a mentor. Serve dinner. Help with laundry. Just sit and listen. These are not big things but they make all the difference in a child's life. Listening to a child, without judgment, can enrich lives. Positive interaction let's kids know that they are accepted.
Kindness costs nothing - be that person!
