"People, even more than things have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed. Never throw out anyone." Audrey Hepburn. 

They're everywhere, in every city, homeless people living on the streets, begging for a handout. Young, old, men, women - how did these people end up living like that - like throwaways that no one seems to care about anymore.

I'm helping out with, Out in the Cold, a group who cooks warm meals and then distributes it to those living on the streets.  I decided to join them because we all matter. Everyone one of us. Doesn't matter who we are, where we come from, or how we're living. No one is a throwaway. 

I think lives just get messed up sometimes and people don't know how to get back on track. But talking to these people, listening to their stories, I hear their heart and their humanity.

Happy Day Guys.

Such a great quote!(Audrey Hepburn).
Kudos to you for joining the humanitarian Out in the Cold group! Warm meals in the streets of a cold Canada is like oxygen to breathing.

What a lovely thing to do! There are so many and the work you do matters a great deal to them. This group reminds me of the word Jesus spoke to His followers, "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." I thank God for folks like you.

Yes, we do all matter.

I think what you are doing is just so good.
Our local Church does a weekly soup run and it is always well supported which is great to see.
There are so many people out there who do their best to help those who need it, I applaud each and everyone of them.

Take Care

All the best Jan

That is a wonderful thing to do! We all need to find ways to help those in need, not judging but simply giving and helping as we can, being the hands of Jesus in this world.
