Donations to charity, either of money or of product, are down dramatically this year. There is no shortage of volunteers to work at charities offering Thanksgiving food to people who are in unfortunate circumstances, but the amount of food that these charities are being given, or money to buy the food, is not what it used to be. All the free labor in the world isn't going to cook turkeys if there aren't turkeys to be cooked.
Let's be part of the solution, Readers. I gave today here; a $10 "ticket" buys a nice Thanksgiving dinner for a family of five.
If you are fortuante enough to have a job and a roof over your head and a place to go tomorrow, please spare a thought for those who are less fortunate than you and buy a ticket. Or two or ten. If you don't like the charity I link to, that's cool; please give somewhere else that you know to be reliable. It's easy, fast, and you'll feel better about yourself if you just do it now. Thanks in advance for your generosity.
