Take me to Stay Warm! What it Means When People Leave Scarves Tied to Trees

People all around the country are doing something very heartwarming for those who don't have anything. If you look around your city, you may see scarves tied to trees. You may be wondering what they are for? This heartwarming thing that people who can do for others, are making handmade scarves or giving their old ones away. They are tying them to trees for the homeless with a nice message attached to them. Some messages say: “I'm not lost! Please take me with you if you are cold, Stay warm! God bless!”


They are not just tying them to trees though. You may see different colored scarves tied to light poles, along the city roads, and all along different neighborhoods all over the country.


This is such an awesome thing to do, don't you think? If you see a homeless person trying to stay warm this winter, why not donate and leave your scarf tied to a tree or light pole, or wherever you can tie it to or even donate your time by making some for those in need? However you do this for the homeless, it will be very much appreciated.


It it obvious how much people care about others by doing this for those who have trouble staying warm when they have no place to go. If we could get a lot more people to do this for others, the world would be a much better place, don't you think?


One person participating in this project is Elizabeth Sammons and she is using her passion for knitting to make these scarves for the homeless. She had this to say about how this project is really helping those in need this Christmas season:

“I think it's a great thing to be able to do for the community. (There's) a lot of people behind it, a lot of support. It's really nice”


As soon as the scarf project started in Seymour, Indiana, church members, students, business people, and everyday people have been getting into this project to help the homeless stay warm for the winter.


This is really nice for these people to do this for those who are in need! Why don't you participate by tying a scarf to a tree or a light pole? Giving for the holidays is a great thing but giving to those who really need it all the time is even better!
