It isn’t uncommon to find along the riverfront in Madison small items left for strangers. Yesterday while taking pictures of the weather conditions on the Ohio, Madison Courier reporter Tali Hunt found these items with the attached note, which says:

I AM NOT LOST!!! I’ve been left here on purpose...If you are in the cold and in need...Please take me, I am yours...To help chase the chill away...If you can...help someone today...God Bless.

We don’t know who left them or if there was an intended recipient. We asked some folks who are often on the riverfront and found they have occasionally seen similar items. It warmed a blustery, chilly day to see mankind offering a helping hand.
