One of the many perks of working at Spring is the “Spring Birthday Policy”. The policy allows us Springers to take the day off for our birthday as long as we partake in a Strange Act of Kindness (SAK) in return. As my birthday approached I hummed and hawed over what I should do. Due to my shopping problem (eek!), I realized I likely had some clothes I no longer needed that could be of great use to someone else. SO for my SAK, my roommate and I filled a large box with clothes and shoes from our closets and I went to drop it off at the Covenant House in downtown Vancouver. The woman at the reception desk was so excited about the donation and thanked me profusely, it made me wonder how often they get donations this time of year.
