I Challenge YOOOOUUUUUuuuuuuuuuuuu!
A fellow blogger has issued a holiday challenge I think that;s worth repeating. His original post is HERE but in summary it goes a bit like this. The next time you are out and about, looking to buy some goodies for your collection or just to do some retail therapy in general, pick up something for those less fortunate. Here in the US we have the US Marine Corps Toy's for Tot's Program or the American Red Cross as great possibilies. Online donations are always good. Or even take some time and go through your closet, drop off some old clothes at the local shelter and such. Volunteer some time at the local animal shelter or soup kitchen. The folks in the northeast US are far from "OK" as far as Hurricane recovery is concerned, I've been down that road myself and it takes a long time (and I was quite lucky) SO, I challenge all of you... to take a minute and a couple bucks or some time and help out someone else before the new year... or the world ends next month, which ever comes first. You never know about those tricksy Mayans.
