NATIONAL ROOF OVER YOUR HEAD DAY – December 3

0a3

NATIONAL ROOF OVER YOUR HEAD DAY

Each year on December 3rd National Roof Over Your Head Day is celebrated across the United States.

National Roof Over Your Head Day was created as a day to be thankful for what you have, starting with the roof over your head.  There are many things that we have that we take for granted and do not stop to appreciate how fortunate we are for having them.

All across our nation there are many that do not have  the things that, to us, are a normal part of our everyday life, such as the roof over our heads, the food we eat, the clothes we wear and etc.  There are people who do not even have the roof of a shelter, they are living in the streets, in cardboard boxes or in alleys.

National Roof Over Your Head Day is about remembering to always appreciate what you have.  This day follows closely after Thanksgiving; a day to be thankful.  So just like Thanksgiving, be thankful for what you do have and always remember, that it is a better feeling than worrying about what you do not have.

To celebrate National Roof Over Your Head Day you can pick a name or two off of a Christmas Giving Tree,  volunteer at a homeless shelter near you or make a contribution to a homeless shelter in your area and maybe someone else will be able to have a “roof over their head” tonight.
