I am very thankful for the fact that I got to come home to a 70 degree home....I was almost all the way here when I saw a few of our "regular" homeless guys here on the 16th street mall....hopped on the mall shuttle and rode back down to McDonalds.......for less than $10 I fed 6 guys tonight, when it's feezin tits out......I am thankful that I can afford to do that, and thankful to not have to be in their shoes.

And I am not religious, but I am hopeful that those guys make it through tonights single digits.

Enjoy your families and friends tomorrow!

Wow....my hat's off to you. A lot of people would have thought about doing it, but just kept heading home. The world is definitely a better place because of people like you. I'm sure those guys appreciated it more than any of us can imagine.

Good man. I am thankful there are people like you out there.
PRIMARY: The prime directive
SECONDARY: My wife says it's her.

The most important thing to remember about drunks is that drunks are far more intelligent than non-drunks. They spend a lot of time talking in pubs, unlike workaholics who concentrate on their careers and ambitions, who never develop their higher spiritual values, who never explore the insides of their head like a drunk does.

Good for you Chris - if we end up meeting up over Christmas, let's have a couple beers and then help some folks out

i have done nearly the same thing.

on my way home from a snowboarding session and saw a guy off the freeway in the middle of the road with a sign "will work for food" I flipped a bitch grabbed some cheese burgers and fries and a drink from Mc Donalds and held it out the window. He was so thankful he nearly had it finished before my light turned green.

giving to those who aren't are fortunate or got dealt a bad hand is very rewarding indeed.
