She got just enough, when added to some thing she had bought herself, to enable everyone to have a package to open.
This year she asked again, and left her cardboard box in the corridor. It had already been emptied once when I took this picture - this is the second lot of gifts - some are unwanted items - but others are being bought especially. I was very proud that my daughter, buying a gift for someone, realised that she could make use of a special offer to get two sets of men's toiletries at half price - so did, and gave them to me to put in the Graih box.
This year every one of those homeless and/or friendless men and women will get at least one present again. The best sort of Giving, I think.
