Someone in the Western Cape went out and bought a few beanies and gloves for the homeless. This weekend was a chilly one in parts, so the gesture was felt deeply.
Hanging from pillars, light posts and traffic lights, sets of beanies and gloves were scattered around Melkbosstrand over the weekend to ensure that any person in need, got a warm surprise. A picture popped up on the Melkbosstranders Facebook group showing an anonymous resident’s good deed.
The gesture, while a small one, was felt throughout the community and many thanked the person responsible for their thoughtful efforts.
“I love this! Huge blessings to whoever is doing this. What a beautiful heart you have.”- Liza Lindeque
“What an amazing idea. Very thoughtful warm-hearted people out there” – Amy Hitchens
With the highest temperature being 18 degrees over this past weekend, the lows sent chills through everyone. Kind deeds like this always warm the soul and often we see individuals doing their small part to make the lives of the homeless within their communities a little brighter.
Many like to donate clothes and food to shelters while some, place warm blankets and scarves in areas usually populated by the homeless. If you would like to make donations to a shelter, you can find a helpful list here.
