Saving the world one name at a time



Here is what I've learned re sharing food for the Have NOTS (Neighbors on the Street)
Wonderful instinct and generosity but please give to folks DIRECTLY
It will:
-Prevent your generous gesture from ending up as trash
-Give you a chance to receive direct heartfelt appreciation
-Give the recipient chance to interact in meaningful way
-eg ask (perhaps) what it is, where its from, how old it is
-will eliminate someone having to dig thru trash
-will decrease it being left to rot or make someone sick
-gives recipient face to face to evaluate that you are not crazy /trying to poison them
-let's you know it was eaten and not left as trash
-will lessen trash and spread of disease from what was meant as a genuine heartfelt not wasteful gesture
