Hi, this is Olivia. I think we should help the homeless because everybody would be more awesome.
I am participating in Socktober this year to help homeless people. Socktober happens during the month of October - its when everybody helps homeless people. I got the idea of Socktober from Kid President:
There are a lot of homeless people in New York City, where I live. I see them sitting on the sidewalk. I see them on trains sometimes. I feel sad for them because I think the world should be a better place.
I am asking for your help.
I would like you to send as many new socks as possible to me and other stuff like winter clothes, and blankets and pillows, because winter is coming up soon. I am going to give everything I collect to a homeless shelter in my city. I still haven't decided which one, but my mom and I will soon.
My mom says that if you want to help by sending socks or other items, then either contact her via Facebook or email, or leave a note in the comment section below.
You can also send money and I will donate it or use it buy stuff for the homeless people. You can tell me what you want me to do with it.
I hope you can help.
