-- When unemployed Josh Donovan spots the attractive young lady eating her sandwich alone on the nearby park bench, he figures she's likely just one more downtown office worker who's skimping to get by in the tough economy. The woman, Laura, also notices Josh and initiates contact. But is she interested in Josh himself or in the sandwiches and chips he's sharing with those homeless folks? Or both? She does not reveal much about herself, or where she works or who she works with. In his methodical job search, he also discovers numerous needs for workers, even though the local offices and businesses don't seem to have enough money or fiscal confidence to hire anyone. Together, he and Laura look for solutions outside the proverbial box. Josh sets out to help those with less mobility who have fallen through the cracks by bringing them a small but much-appreciated meal. He doesn't think his efforts are all that important until Laura identifies them as Random Sacks of Kindness.

will appeal to readers who have a love of the holiday season and heartfelt inspirational stories that remind them of the true spirit of the season.
