If, like me, you have some sins to atone for, here are a few things you can do toward that end between now and the end of the year:
- Feed the hungry. Write a check to your local food bank. If you don’t have a food bank in your neighborhood, then write a check to Feeding America, formerly known as America’s Second Harvest.
- Shelter the homeless. New Orleans has an inordinate number of homeless people. To help them out, write a check to Ozanam Inn.
- Visit a prisoner. If you don’t happen to know anyone in Angola, you can still participate in Amnesty International’s Holiday Card Action:
Hat tip: Matthew 25:34–40.
