BlueKittyCool will be giving away socks, moisturizing hand sanitizer, toothpaste whisp, hair combs, towels, and other various items Saturday to anyone displaced in the CBD area. The packages are being prepared now, and the exact time and location will be announced once we are on site.
Our only wish is that we could give more–but this is what they refer to as a “shoe string” Non-Profit (and proud of it), so of course our budget is low.
We have not asked for donations at this time, as this is more of a personal journey for BlueKitty. The article below explains why.
BlueKittyCool’s Thoughts On Sacrifice and Change.
The strength to sacrifice has all but dwindled in the masses. Self protection at all cost is mistaken for intelligent evolution. However, ask yourself, how is it that I expect others to care for me, if I’ve done nothing to demonstrate that I care for others?
This is a vicious cycle most of us participate in, always wanting-never giving. But why? Most will tell you the same four words… “I can’t afford it.” Really? Let’s take inventory here, do you own the new I-Pad, have cable, or perhaps an unlimited call and data plan? How many games, DVDs, purses, shoes, and gadgets are strewn about right now? Chances are you’re not using half of them anymore.
Many of us can afford it-we simply are not willing to sacrifice what perceived little we have, to help someone with less. Perhaps this is exactly what the wealthy are thinking also. Perhaps, to sacrifice buying a new boat evokes the same fear that another would have over sacrificing a front-loading washing machine, or a vacuum-that never loses suction!
Could it be that we are all secretly thinking the exact same thing, only in a different context?
The only obvious solution, and we’ve heard this before-is to start with self. I cannot depend on my words to motivate others-but I can be the change. I can sacrifice what I wish others would myself. Therein lays the true test of humanity, not as a whole, but within yourself.
