I’ve been compensated by HP for this partnership. All opinions expressed are my own.
This is the season of giving, so I teamed up with HP to pay it forward as a part of their #ReinventGiving campaign!
I was excited to give back to a community of homeless people I’ve come to know through passing. Many spend a lot of time at a park near my apartment downtown, and I’m thankful to have had the opportunity to gift them with a care package this week! I also included a note I created on my HP Spectre x360 with the touch-pen – Sometimes a message can speak louder than a gift!
So, I hit the streets to spread some love! My favorite encounter was with a man who has called the streets his home for 7 years. Asking for donations is his livelihood, and he says he’s thankful for anything he can get. I gave him a care package and a couple more to give his friends. While we were chatting, someone in a passing car gave him $10! He said he usually leaves after he receives $6, so when our conversation ended he packed up and was on his way.
There’s something so special about giving. Sometimes even more so on the giving side than the receiving. Yet, the ripple effects are positive on both ends. How are you giving back this season? Spread some love!
Huge thank you to HP for inviting me to #ReinventGiving with them!
