The Joy of Socks

Thanks to three generous donations of socks-- all from California!-- I've been handing out more socks than ever.

And the best people to hand out socks to are folks with signs or who are begging for money. First of all, they don't expect it. But really, it's something they actually need.

Here's some of the responses I've gotten:

"Whoa! Socks are like gold!"

"You don't know how much I need these!"

"A pair of dry socks is what I need the most!" -- this last from an obvious alcoholic.

Carry socks in your car and hand them out freely to those in need on the street!

And praise God for David Reece who is starting to do this very kind of distribution to those in need in Orange County!
