My friend and I started this kind gesture 3 years ago. Where'd we save up our McDonald's coffee tabs, and Tim Hortons Roll Up The Rim winnings, and we give them to the homeless. This tradition normally takes place around the cold month and as we roam the streets, we give each one homeless individual that we come across our McDonald's coffee tab. Throughout the year each one of us would save approx. 10 full cards, or more, which both of us would total to 30 combined, depending on how much coffee we drink within the year.
With his passing last year, I have continued on this tradition each year.
