Restos du Coeur . . . Have a Heart . . .

In these days of economic crisis, far from finished apparently, few employed people are ever much farther than a heartlessly cold business decision from gainful employment and a roof over one's head, to life on the street. And were one to end up unemployed and homeless, one might just be very thankful someday for the existence of the "Restos du Coeur"... "Restaurants of the Heart", who provide meals to homeless people, and have been doing so since 1985 if I understand correctly.
In any case, I just saw over on Peter's blog, Peter's Paris, that two main sponsors of the Restos du Coeur, Carrefour and Danone corporations, will offer ten free meals for every blog article published about the Restos du Coeur. If this is so, then in my humble opinion it is well worth doing. Apparently one just needs to send an e-mail with the link to the blog post in it to this e-mail address :
So here's hoping that ten people will get a hot meal thanks to these few words here . . . it's the least I can do. And if a few of you jump on the bandwagon . . . imagine how many meals that could add up to . . .

I just booked part of my Paris trip for next fall. I would love to take pictures of some of the Restos du Coeur while I'm there for a blog post. It sounds really great. In the mean time I'll do some research on it. Thanks for the info.

Have a great weekend.
