I just thought I'd stand on my soapbox for a moment:
As the season is now upon us it is time again for the bell ringers to stand in front of the local Wal-Mart and for many charities to ask for donations. How do charities play into the economics of the nation this year? I am left to wonder after the many natural disasters and happenings of 2005 if there is still anything left to give. Many still seem to be able to find it in them to give for the holidays. I think that no matter our own circumstances and no matter what we've already given that to really feel the spirit of the season we need to continue to help others in need.
