Groups of dedicated Common Changers are collaborating to share stories and meet needs of those they know. As we head towards Christmas time, let us remember that it is not a happy time for many who have lost friends and family members this year or who are currently struggling to make ends meet.
In Texas, we have helped ease a burden for a family who has recently faced unemployment and ‘adopted’ a family for Christmas by fitting out their house with beds and mattresses; in Alabama, we were able to buy a juicer to give ongoing assistance to a dear friend who is struggling through cancer treatment; in California, we helped with the costs of a cremation for a family, who could not afford it; while in Kentucky, we assisted some family members with the costs of furniture needed as they moved into a new home.
Let’s celebrate a Common Change Christmas together.
If you have not yet shared a request this year, why not take this season as an opportunity to look around you and see if there is a need in the life of someone you know and love, that you could bring to your group?
Thank you for being the best part of Common Change.
