Little SLC philanthropy...Drive for Hats,Socks, Gloves for needy kids!
Heres the deal...
My 8 year-old nephew came up to his dad last Wed with the idea of gathering 100 pairs of mittens/gloves, 100 pairs of winter socks, and 100 warm hats for local area kids who don't have the resources to get them readily.
Not withstanding that he's an 8-year old with a heart, what forsight and generosity this kid has to start this up. Last night I watched him trying to create a flyer on the computer to distribute in his South Jordan neighborhood to solicit this endeavor.
He wants to give the proceeds to a homeless women and children shelter in the area..forgive me for not knowing exactly what one.
I for one am kicking in 30-bucks for his cause....
I guess I see next weekends party at frizzo's a prime chance for us as a community to help out in a small way.
If any who attends this function could bring a new pair of kids warm socks, mittens/gloves, or a warm winter hat it would be a very cool gesture. Not only would it give my nephew (who'm if this goes over at the party, will subject to the maggot/minion scrutiny...he's a damn good and considerate kid) a boost in the confidence of who surrounds him, but just an overall great gesture to our township and area.

Page 2 bump.
The Mrs had a good thought on this, pool the money and have an unemployed guy (not naming names, too many ) to go out to thrift shops and really make the moeny go far."boobs just make the world better really" - Woodsy

Better yet!! Help him learn to budget too, and maybe haggle the prices down based on quantity.

I turn around and see Skibe, also picking up friends to show em the goods in Utah. We had a very breif "hello" and then our friends showed up and the game was on.
Skibe, hope to see ya there!
