A plug for charities

I've always been a sensitive, cry-at-the-drop-of-a-hat kind of gal (just ask the Hubs...I doubt he'd mention a steely personality as one of my primary traits). But nothing pulls at my heartstrings more than needy kids (and animals....and old people...ok, I'm a bit of a mush).

The Salvation Army Angel Tree went up the other day and I have to make a little plug for it. This is my fourth year to participate in it through work - and I completely love it. Basically, you just pick a needy kid and buy their Santa's Wish List. How cool is that? Not only can you satisfy your own shopping compulsion but you get to make a random kid happy in the process.

So when you're out shopping to spoil your own kids this holiday season (and by all means, go nuts!*), spoil someone else's kid who wouldn't otherwise get that flying-off-the-shelves Doggie Doo under the tree without your help. (Seriously people, did we REALLY have to invent a pooping dog for kids to play with? And do we really think it has to be a must-have toy?)


*Especially you, mom. :)
