The blankets that go to children in need are so valuable. I have some blankets and towels and soaps that are going to the homeless shelter this month. It is something the family shelters need in the winter.

Love your wonderful ideas. Some things don't take any money like volunteering at the homeless shelter, donating blood, even taking a bag and picking up litter on our walks. Every little act helps.

Have a wonderful day.

Playing music for church services. Sometimes preparation can be a drag, but helping the congregation worship...worth it all!

Hi Team,
Seems to me as we do our best to approach a healthy lifestyle there are many areas you need to be happy in. Its great to have water intake goals, eating within calorie range with healthier choices, sticking to a exercise routine that keeps your body moving and adapting to a healthier you. Leaves me to wonder- how are you strengthening your soul and wellbeing?

For me its been setting goals to do the charity 5k events, creating fleece throws I will be donating tomorrow to either the Women's Battered Shelter or if I can find the Children in Crisis organizer they will go there. I figured everyone needs something to hold onto that is warm and keeps you secure. A homemade gift that says, "Even though I don't know you I CARE."

Next on my list is I am currently trying to get one of the ladies I work with who are Marine spouses to see if their husband's unit are willing to be our store sponsor so I can set up a box for Toys for Tots. That way I know the toys will get to children in our area. I think every child deserves a special toy under a tree come the holidays plus I think it will boost our inner work spirit knowing we are working together to brighten up some kids lives. My goal in October is to buy toys = up to $20 each week. We have tons of toys that go on clearance at Marshalls so its easy for me to knock out the excuse of I don't have time to shop.

November/December, I have a wonderful lady I work with who I tell everyone is the "true heart" of our store. She's our go to person to ask for counselling, prayers, hugs, you name it and she give so much to her church, Red Cross volunteer, and does the Meals on Wheels. I have enlisted her help for me to reach my end of year goal. Since I focused on health & mixing it with charities for Sept/October, October/November is for the kids, November/December I am focusing on the elderly. She is going to be giving me ideas for gifts, I am thinking cards, small gift bags with mugs & small snacks, socks, lap blankets and she's mentioned the ladies love the shawls she wears when visiting. So I am going to on the lookout for an easy pattern that will be low in cost for me to make fleece shawls too. Its got to be hard come the holidays as we grow older and possibly outlive our loved ones. No one should feel like they are a shadow of themselves and don't matter. I think I will love seeing some older faces smile who have the inner kids still living inside.

These are the things I've come up with to help me feed my soul and keep a happy healthy well being. What do you think?
Got more ideas? Please list some more, maybe you can spark someone else to feed their souls along the way. emoticon emoticon
