Donation Birds

trees covered with white doves and lights

Donation Birds

Every bird on these trees represents a promise to a child for gifts this holiday season.

I haven’t been in a mall in probably a decade, and was only in this one for the sake of setting up a holiday art exhibit. The simply beauty of these trees stopped me in my tracks and brought tears to my eyes; I didn’t even need to know why the birds all had tags, I just knew it represented the generosity of several hundred people. And it was only December 2.

It made the trip to a mall worth it.
