Thoughtful Kids Tied Coats To Street Poles To Keep The Homeless Warm In Winter

Just a couple of weeks ago, a woman and some fabulous kids did something so special…they tied coats onto street poles to help the homeless stay warm during the cold winter months ahead. Is it holiday spirit, or just a bunch of caring people in Halifax, Canada.

Thank you Tara Smith-Atkins for teaching your 8-year-old daughter (on her birthday, no less) and her friends the importance of being a caring human being in a world where we question what direction it’s headed for. You help to restore faith. Bravo to the good Samaritans.

This strange sight greeted the people of Halifax on November 15, 2015.

This is partly how the 8-year-old spent her birthday. Impressive.

“They definitely learned the importance of it,” Smith-Atkins said

“When we got back in the car after an hour on the street, they were all freezing and crying for the heater to be on and complaining because they were cold. And they were bundled up.”

It took the family a few weeks to gather the coats from around their community
