Tis the Season to Pay it Forward, fa la la la la la la la la

As much as I love telling you guys about different scams out there, I find myself having a passion for helping people. I've always wanted to make a difference, but didn't know where to start.

I used to tell myself, "if I only won the lottery, or had my own business making a bunch of money, I could help so many people." Then I'd sit there and do nothing. So now it's time for a change!

You don't need a bunch of money to make a difference. I've really had a passion for helping the homeless families and individuals in my local area. I've decided to use social media and marketing to benefit others and not just myself.

My bright idea is to start a sleeping bag/coat/sweater/blanket etc drive. I've already posted a bulletin on my myspace account and twitter, and now on my blog.

The idea here is if anyone is interested in donating they can send me an email message at wintercoatdrive@yahoo.com

There I will contact you with details on where to send donations. Also I will send you more details as to where I will be taking your donations too. I still have some logistics to figure out, but I wanted to start creating a buzz.

Thanks to everyone for visiting my blog and reading this post, I know it's a little different, but hey different is good.

Dana,

I think this is a great idea!!! I don't have anything that I could donate right now, but I'll definitely keep my eyes open. I will go through my husband's and my closets to see if there is something that I can donate.
