National Roof Over Your Head Day
When : Always December 3
Today is National Roof Over Your Head Day. It is a day of appreciation for the things we have, starting with the roof over our heads.
For most of us, a roof over our head signifies living in a house that protects us from the elements, keeping us warm, dry, and cozy. Unfortunately, not everyone is as lucky as you and I. There are many homeless people right here in our country. Some people live in a cardboard box on the street...... literally. There are millions of people around the world who live in poverty or disaster areas, and do not have a home to keep them comfortable and safe.
Spend a few minutes appreciating your roof and home today, along with the many things you have. And, also make a contribution to a homeless shelter, so others can come in out of the rain.
Happy National Roof Over Your Head Day!
