Good in The Hood

A little inspiration for the Kindness Challenge. Please read what this 10-year-old boy most wishes for this holiday season. Snacks, so he is not the only child without. Pokemon cards. Such simple things that our own children take for granted. These things can make a huge difference in the life of a child in a difficult situation.

Consider sponsoring a child or family this holiday season. Locally, consider the non-profit Good in the ‘Hood:

“Good in the ‘Hood takes great care in aligning families in need with the best potential sponsors based on their specific budgets and intentions. Sponsors have the option of assisting with the holiday gifts and meal of an individual, one family or many families. A guideline of $50 is given for presents for each child or adult. A $50 gift is also the recommendation for a meal to feed three to eight people. Sponsors can shop for the gifts with the help of a wish list provided by the family via the organization, or sponsors can elect to have a Good in the ‘Hood employee purchase the gifts based on the sponsor’s monetary commitment. Assistance is also provided by Good in the ‘Hood for the delivery of gifts and food, but the sponsors may find that they want to take the opportunity to greet the family they are helping this holiday season and deliver the gifts themselves.” (From WCCO)
