As we enter the Holiday season and prepare to gather with family and reflect on being thankful and humble for what we have, there are millions of Americans who aren’t as fortunate. The homeless.

Well, there is a new trend happening around the country and it’s catching on like wildfire!

Thousands of people from all across the nation are taking scarves and tying them around the base of trees and poles in parks, along city roads and in neighborhoods.

No, people aren’t trying to make trees more fashionable- it’s something much more meaningful than that!

These scarves are generously left for homeless people that are exposed to the frigid (and dangerous) winter temperatures! The warm scarves are free to anyone who needs them and can provide much-needed insulation from below-freezing weather.

Some scarves are even left with messages:

“I’m not lost! Please take me with you if you are cold. Stay warm. God bless!”

“If you are down on your luck and find this gift in a tree, know that it is given with love and completely free.”

It’s clear to see that the people who leave these cuddly scarves truly care and want to spread holiday cheer with those who need it the most!

Some people involved in the project, like Elizabeth Sammons, use their love for knitting to give out their own homemade scarves! Elizabeth told WCCO News just how amazing it feels to help those in need.

“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.”

Since the trend started in Seymour, Indiana, church groups, schools fundraisers and kind random strangers from almost every state are pitching in to make sure a good portion of the 1.5 million homeless Americans are a little warmer this winter!
