"You can do something for another person that no one else ever born can do” James E. Faust
One day after we had gathered his old toys, Alec asked me 'how do the 'poor children' play outside when it snows?" He was 8 years old and he was concerned about other children building snow men, going sledding, and all those other winter activities. I told him that there may be some who couldn't play outside in the snow because they didn't have the right clothing. He asked if we could help.
I asked him what he thought we could do to help them, and together we talked about what gets cold first when he was playing at recess. He said his ears (snow hats), his fingers (gloves), and his feet (socks).
And so we started gathering, and "For the Warmth of the Children" was started!
