A Vancouver charity, RainCity Housing, is converting city benches into pop-up shelters for homeless people.
Compassion. We hope you show it to others, and also to yourself.
"You couldn’t erase the past. You couldn’t even change it. But sometimes life offered you the opportunity to put it right."
Someone left us a present! A traveling copy of Freaky Friday (RIP, Mary Rodgers) with a very intriguing Post-it note on the cover, and a code written on the side:
Bookcrossing.com is a site that connects people through books — you catch a book, read it, release it again, and log it on the site with your comments. Entering the code on our copy of Freaky Friday revealed a poignant message from user ResQgeek: “Registered in memory of my daughter, who was tragically killed on 30 August 2010.”
We’re sorry for your loss — and we’ll pass the book on!
We love the idea of sharing books with others— whether by handing an friend books directly, secretly leaving books as gifts, or by leaving a favorite read somewhere for a stranger to find!
