The brainchild of widow Mary Lee Robinson, Set an Extra Plate Initiative is a very simple way to help someone who has suffered a recent loss or is alone over the holidays. No money required, no money involved, simply invite someone from work, church or the neighbor-hood to join your holiday dinner.

Be part of the initiative by clicking on the plate, download the PDF to your computer, and help share on social media.

It's simple . . . set an extra plate and give a little joy to the bereaved over the holidays.
