My Promise ~ Sunday #3

Sunday #3 of December
And as promised
from my connecting 3 posts,

I accomplished two more activities last week.

Gift #5:
Continuing from my donation of
warm mittens, toques and scarves
for the Newcomer Welcome Centre,
I asked friends from work
if they had anything to contribute,
along with our Marketing Department,
and contribute they did!

Along with more warm woolies,
I also collected a few warm coats as well!
Thank you everyone for your help!
(I work with some fantastic people!!!)

Gift #6:
I am giving my old (but still very stylish!!!)
eyeglasses to the Lions Club.
(Most optometrist offices take the donations.)

The gift of site for someone who can't afford it.
I am getting new glasses tomorrow and usually,
I throw my old glasses into a drawer and forget about them.
But not this year!

I only see what remains to be done."

Watch for my last "My Promise" post next Sunday night.

Have a beautiful week!

Peace on Earth

I just love reading this post! It is very heart-warming! Keep up the fabulous work, Catherine!

Kea said...

Fabulous, Catherine! What a great idea to donate your glasses, too. I don't wear any yet (soon, I think -- lol), but it's such a simple thing to donate your old ones, but means the world to someone else. Ditto for the donation of warm outerwear!

You are doing great. I've never thought about the old eye glasses. I do the same just throw them in a drawer and forget about them. I'm going to have to dig mine out.

Again, I am inspired! It's the little things (like the glasses) that I forget about. We (I) take so many things for granted. If we just open our eyes, we'll see there are so many opportunities for sharing with others. Thank you!!! xxx

Aaah...I'm all caught up, as I read this last are such a thoughtful and generous soul. And so true to your word. You are lovely, Catherine.

Have I filled up enough of your inbox yet?
