Giving A Hand

Our good J-Land friend, Mary, has started a new blog along the lines of the AOL Journal The Giving Tree. It is called GIVE..A Hand UP. Please go check it out if you haven't already.

I'm going to quote Mary's first paragraph on her introductory post:
"It may be easier to ask a stranger for something in a time of need rather than a friend or neighbor. Need something? Just ask, and I'll post an entry to see if anyone has what you need. Not cash, cars, plasma tvs or Coach bags :-0, but a warm coat for your child, a blanket for your grandmother,a care package when food is scarce, or an outfit to go on a job interview."
I love the idea for this blog and bless Mary's thoughtfulness for doing this. Please drop by GIVE and pass the word in your own blogs, if you don't mind.
