“Keep Both Eyes Open”

Well it is the time of giving
And of the taking too
There’s so many requests for helping out
What ever can we do?
 
Now one can usually spot the needy
Or a damsel in distress
Yet at times before contributing
It is good to second guess.
 
Each day we see some make attempt
To ply finds for a need
Still so many of them overlap
And at this one should heed.
 
Why don’t the secondary groups
Join the initial one in force
They could still have many wagons
But the need of just one horse.
 
You’ll find there are a lot of groups
All willing to help out
Still check out what each will provide
Then you can donate without a doubt!
