One Man's Junk, Is Another Man's Treasure

Today, I went through my recycle bin and sorted out all the soda cans into a plastic bag.

Our neighbors are struggling financially. One way they add some extra income to their household is by cashing in their soda cans. I thought why not donate my cans instead of just recycling them. They were very grateful!!

Last month alone, they were able to take a trip to the East Coast for the holidays to visit their kids just from all of the cans they managed to collect. Maybe my bag can at least put some bread on their table.

Observe those around you and their needs. You might be amazed how the most insignificant items in your life can be the most significant in theirs.
