    Happy Thanksgiving, WSB community!

    I would like to share an idea, for any families or individuals who may have enough Thanksgiving dinner to share, to package up a couple containers of home cooking and drive out in the community, and find a neighbor living on the streets, to give a home cooked meal to, and share a brief moment of kindness and connection.

    This is something I have done and is where my inspiration for The Cozy Project has come from.

    A couple months ago when I spoke with some of the folks in Junction Plaza Park, I had a conversation with a woman named Kaety. I asked her, aside from basic needs, is there anything that she longs for, anything that could bring a sense of comfort and coziness to her world. Her face and eyes softened and she said, you know, the thing I really miss and long for… is home cooked spaghetti.

    This conversation affirmed this idea I’ve had for years and what I had been envisioning for The Cozy Project, encouraging direct community connection and outreach to homeless neighbors, by way of sharing a moment of kindness and the comfort and coziness of a home cooked meal, and perhaps sometimes other cozy gifts.

    Although I haven’t formerly organized this project quite yet, this holiday where many households are doing something different, feels like a good opportunity to share this idea and encourage anyone so inclined to get out there tonight, and share some cozy with someone in need.

    If you aren’t cooking or don’t have leftovers, you could also consider picking up some cheeseburgers and french fries, or whatever you think to give!

    I guarantee, a home cooked meal, or any gesture of coziness, would mean so much to someone who is alone and cold outside today.

    Thank you for reading and considering,

    The Cozy Project
