Thankful Thursday, the TurkeyDay edition.


I am thankful there are organizations like the Salvation Army out there to help those who need it — to offer a meal, a helping hand, a job, counseling, rehab, a place to sleep, a blanket to keep warm, whatever needs to be done. On Wednesday afternoon I was proud to be able to help out in a small way.

My throne:


I rang the bell to the rhythms in my head, greeted everyone who came in, thanked everyone who donated, and wished everyone a happy Thanksgiving as they left. It was a total blast. My favorites were the moms who gave each of their children some money — pennies, a dollar bill, a handful of change — to put into the bucket.

Please give generously to the Salvation Army. They do good work with those who most need it.

Happy Thanksgiving!

    well done to you too.

  2. Sweep of the hat – and MAZEL TOV!! (you did indeed get it right) That thing you did? With the red bucket? There’s a word for it: MITZVAH. That’s Hebrew; the closest translation is “good deed”. But oh, my friend, it’s much more than that. A mitzvah makes the angels smile, and the Creator nod with pleasure.

    Good for you. I always stuff bills into the buckets but have never been a bell ringer … maybe in a couple of years I’ll be able to swing it.

    we buy a meal for a family at xmas time, but even so I feel guilty when I pass the bucket by.

    When I was a kid my mom always gave me money to put in the Salvation Army bucket. And then I did the same for Hannah.

    Excellent work! Although it’s ALWAYS time for personal philanthropy, this is the season to make it count!!!
