This new trend is sweeping the country, but what does it mean if you see a scarf tied around a tree?
Scarves are being left tied round trees in a generous move to help homeless people who might be short of clothing to keep them warm.
It seems the world is moving towards a more accepting view on homelessness as we expand our hearts and minds.
Homelessness is a huge problem worldwide, and many feel the authorities aren’t helping as much as they could. It is becoming more commonplace with the advent of social media for schemes to be set up in the community for those who want to help.
Social media has no doubt had a hand in helping spread this plan of action around the country, in the hope that it can reach and help as many people as it possibly can.
People have really been touched by this scheme and it has inspired so many different people to help.
WCCO reported Elizabeth Sammons backing of the idea.
She said “I think it’s a great thing to be able to do for the community. [There’s] a lot of people behind it, a lot of support. It’s really nice.”
Scarves have even been left with kind messages to whoever may need it, making sure those in need know they can take it if they so wish. One scarf was left with the message “I’m not lost! Please take me with you if you are cold. Stay warm. God bless!”
The trend started in Seymour, Indiana but has quickly spread around the country.
If you have a spare scarf or two lying around the house, and you probably do, why not get out there into the community and help someone in need by donating it to this excellent cause.
