Sights and sounds of Christmas are popping up everywhere! It seems the second the turkey is put away, we all start planning our Christmas Holiday! Not that I’m complaining! It’s my favorite time of year.
I received a letter last week from a Mr. Morris Parker from Ohio. Mr. Parker has adopted his childhood elementary school and spends countless hours volunteering throughout the year. For the past 27 years, Mr. Parker has single handedly collected books, educational materials and requested corporate donations to benefit the students of Youngstown City School District. And he does all this using public transportation, not to mention his own money! Not only does he provide the school with needed educational materials and funds, he dresses up for activities throughout the year including the Easter Bunny for Easter. Of course, none of this was mentioned in his letter. I only found out the extent of his service and dedication to the community from the Principal of the school who said this to Mr. Parker in a letter that she shared with me:
“Just saying thank you doesn’t seem like enough for all the hours, money and energy you put into the Adopt-a-School Program. There are so many things that I could not accomplish without your help. Who would give more than 27 years of service anywhere without pay, especially having only public transportation?”
The purpose of Mr. Parker’s letter was to request a Santa Wig donation for his beautiful Santa Claus costume. Every year, he visits the schools as Santa Claus and gives the children candy canes. The children look forward to this exciting visit throughout the year.
When I read this letter, I was reminded of all the good people in the world. People like Mr. Parker who dedicate countless hours helping, uplifting and serving their community.
At My Costume Wigs, we are all about having a good time, dressing up and playing a special role at special events. But Mr. Parker’s letter reminded me dressing up can really, truly benefit the lives of other people in not only by the way we look, but in the way we act.
