In much of the country, December is a very cold time of year. But it is especially cold for those who are experiencing homelessness. According to the Annual Homeless Assessment Report by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), 610,042 people were homeless in Jan. 2013. Of these people, more than 215,000 were living in unsheltered locations. The HUD also estimated that nearly one-quarter of the people experiencing homelessness were under the age of 18. These numbers were calculated by taking a single-night count, and the numbers may fluctuate from night to night or month to month.

With so many different and fun holidays and traditions in December, we all want to surround ourselves with positivity, family, and friends. The holidays bring a sense of hope and happiness, and it’s easy to feel the exact opposite when you turn on the television or scroll through your news feed on Facebook. It also doesn’t help when the weather is cold and dreary during the winter months. At Wheels For Wishes, we like to share several positive news stories each month to remind people to smile, no matter what else may be going on in the world.

It’s November, which means before you know it, Thanksgiving Day will be here. While we all like spending time with family, watching parades, football and of course, feasting on a great meal, the day after Thanksgiving is another day that people look forward to. The Friday after Thanksgiving Day has become more commonly known as “Black Friday,” the start of the holiday shopping season.
Black Friday is dubbed as such because it’s the day retailers make profits – black ink, as opposed to red ink for losses. The day has become extremely important to those retailers, who have really incentivized consumers to get their shopping done that day with low prices and long hours to get it done; some stores open as early as 3 or 4 a.m., with others choosing to open late on Thanksgiving night for a few hours.

Many people identify Thanksgiving as a time to indulge in a large meal with family or friends, but it’s easy to forget the true meaning of Thanksgiving, which is being thankful for all that we have. Instead of indulging in a giant meal that may be unhealthy for ourselves and for the planet, consider taking a kinder and more eco-friendly approach this Thanksgiving and give back to the community you live in.
