I just discovered a very, very poor family about 3 miles from my rural home. They have 4+ dogs, and some little kids, and broken windows in their home, and are thin, disheveled and dirty. I am broke, but not like that. we have food and heat (even though our propane was a present from my brother, cause we can't afford it) and my kids bathe, and my house is well insulated and we're okay. this family isn't okay. When DH gets paid on wednesday, i'm going up to walmart and picking up a 50lb bag of dog food, as well as a gift card to a local grocery store and a few gender non-specific presents. we don't have much, but it really seems that this family is in dire need of help. i can't think of anything beyond an anonymous donation... i don't want them mad at me, or feeling weird about it or anything... but i really wish I could actually make a difference.... thoughts?
