Pay It Forward: Parka Party
A neighborhood blogger in the Roosevelt neighborhood of Seattle came up with this idea. ParkaParty. If you would make a donation to the University District Food Bank, or any other, she would make an avatar of you in a snow filled scene, dressed in a parka. I started seeing avatars of some locals I know in parkas and had no idea what was going on. Preparations for Thanksgiving taking all of my time. I was distracted.
A few days before the holiday, Seattle received an unwarranted blast of winter. Four inches of snow or so and it was cold and the snow stayed. Harrumph! But Patty Campbell was busy promoting her cause. You can donate to most any food bank online these days, and all you need to do is send a receipt for your $10 or more contribution to any food bank to Patty and she'll dress you up. You probably can't buy a parka in Florida, but wouldn't you look smart in one of these?
