I Like Cold Days.

yet to give this gift as it can be given at any moment
After reading stories about people keeping spare stuff for the needy ones in their car trunk, I felt I should somehow do that too. Even though I don’t have a car I do have a bicycle. So I started collecting old sweaters and coats. And then I came up with the idea to put the coat in a see-through plastic bag and put it on the back of my bike. I do not always encounter people, but while I’m inside, studying, hanging out with friends or getting groceries, people can still get this coat if they need it. So if it’s gone, I know that a needy person took the coat. I have been riding around with it for two days now. I hope I can make someone’s day during these cold ones. The card reads (translated) “In case of unbearable cold, then take this old coat and I wish you the best during these harsh cold days”
