Coat Drive for Kids
Donations of children's coats will be collected at Working Hands on November 11th.  All sizes are appreciated.  Donations will go to the Mitzvah Circle Foundation, benefiting kids in crisis.    
World Kindness Day
November 13th    
Let your compassion shine through!  This day dedicated to acts of kindness was started in 1998 and has since spread to 28 countries!  It doesn't have to be elaborate and grandiose actions.  Just a little gesture of kindness goes a long way!  Hold the door, give a compliment, reach out to an elderly neighbor, leave a note for someone that says 'I think you are awesome'.  Share your acts of kindness with us for our next newsletter!   Have fun!  Kindness does feel good!  
Update: First Responders  
Letter Writing Campaign   
200 cards & letters poured in from all over for  
our First Responder Letter Writing Campaign!  
Heartfelt messages of appreciation and gratitude
came from scouting groups, classrooms and  
groups of kids from neighborhoods near and far (even from students in Michigan!).     #hurricaneharvey  #hurricaneirma #thankyoufirstresponders  


How will you give back?  What will you do on Giving Tuesday?   
Among all of the spending launching into the holiday season, it is important to also focus on the giving.  This year consider a special project for the homeless, the elderly or kids in need.  Talk to your kids.  Find out who they want to help.  What your focus will be.  Then contact us to find the perfect project for your family.
