#EverydayPhilanthropist: Kindness in Action

Some people give back by helping to build houses, other people serve meals, and some people knit.

SHARE Charlotte received an unexpected package filled to the brim with hand knitted scarves and hats and no explanation except a simple note that read:

“Share Charlotte, Please give these hats and scared to the homeless and the needy. I am an 88 year old knitter and do not know the charities who can use them. Sincerely, Elaine.”

Elaine is the epitome of an #EverydayPhilanthropist. Elaine used her time and talent for GOOD and is making a huge difference in the lives of the women at YWCA Central Carolinas.
