Here are two ways (that don’t take much time) to help those who need it.
- Homeless Care Package
Last year, I posted “Hand to Hand in Mercy” (click here to see it) where I covered what to put in a care packet for the homeless, so you have something to carry around for when you’re asked. I finally made some packets and a video to show you what I put in mine!
2. Life-Saving Knowledge for the Abused
October is Domestic Abuse Awareness Month. I grew up in a household that was not peaceful, so the tips below are meaningful to me. And, oh, I am extra privileged to be, as of this month, a Faculty Associate of Catholics For Family Peace Education and Research Initiative! So proud to be a small part of the solution. And happy to pass along three things to know:
- There are tons of resources at CatholicsForFamilyPeace.org (click here to see ’em)
- Confidential National Domestic Violence Hotline number is 1-800-799-SAFE (7233)
- Church law (Canon 1153) says “Safety first.” In other words, if you or your children are in danger, you do not have to stay under the same roof as the abuser. No one deserves abuse. Ever.
Scroll down and share in the comment field how you have helped people who are homeless or helped the abused build hope of a better life. I’d love to hear how you have brought your virtue out into the world!
