Even though I'm doing basically nothing (at all) to help my fellow struggling neighbors during this lame recession (I know- I'm a terrible person, I'm sorry), I'm so happy to know that other people are.
This evening I walked out onto my porch and saw a copy of the Sugar House Journal lying there on the ground, just waiting to be picked up. I have never read a copy of it in my entire life. Ever. Like- I usually pick it up and throw it at the neighbor (like I said- terrible person). But for some strange reason (boredom, probably) I decided to open it.
And there, on the front page, was a picture of our friend Jesse (Annie's husband) and their 2 kids. FRONT page. I've never been on the front page of a newspaper. Of course, I've never done anything very noteworthy, either, so I guess it makes sense.
Anyway, from reading the article I learned that Annie & Jesse have grown lots of produce this year and have given their excess to neighbors in need of food. They went as far as to put up flyers and everything. I think you should read the article [click here]. It's inspiring.
Thanks for helping out people in need, Annie! We need more people like you & Jesse in the world :)
Maybe I'll help those in need by giving all of Justin's junk to the D.I.
