  High on a mountain, above a small village, there lived a good kind tailor called Shimmel Cloth. The wool from his sheep made the best fabric and yarn and the villagers came to the tailor to have all their clothes made. Every time they visited him Shimmel told the villagers that they could always come to him "if there is ever anything I can do for you."
  One winter the North Wind, in a fit of temper, sent dreadful freezing winds, ice and snow down on the village. When the villagers built a large fire to keep themselves warm, the North Wind blew the embers of the fire all over the village which is burned to the ground.
  When the tailor saw what had happened to the village below his house, he rounded up his sheep and they set about doing everything they could to help. Even when the job became hard and when the sheep want to give up, Shimmel encouraged them to keep on going, for the villagers need Shimmel and his sheep more than ever before.
  This tale about giving to those in need and giving with an open heart is a warm and often funny reminder of what true giving is all about.
