I was reading through the free list of items on craigslist today and read one very interesting comment.
A lady is giving away a free baby toy item and was saying that she wants to give it to someone needy. She said "shame" on the people that come to pick up free items while driving a nice car and "not looking needy".
What does needy look like?
If you are poor- must you have dirty hair? must you drive a filthy car? I think it is beautiful to be poor and clean. Many needy moms keep their babes freshly washed, changed and likewise care for themselves.
When I went to Africa, I saw a whole lot of poverty but I also saw a whole lot of beauty! It doesnt take much for them to sweep out their shack. It was clean! They didn't look "needy" while walking down the streets with their beautiful smiles!
