We do not have to do big things to help the poor. There is a saying- “big things come in small packages”. Even the smallest things we do can make a big difference in the lives of the poor. For example, any time my mother and I had extra clothes that we wanted to get rid of, we donated them to the Canadian Diabetes Association. In return, the Association sold these clothes to Value Village stores. These stores, which are similar to Salvation Army Thrift Stores, sell clothing and other household items to people at affordable prices.
