Don't mind Tom he's been protesting all week for people to have steaks and roast beef this year instead of deep frying him (or his family). I wanted to take the time out to wish everyone a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving! Take the time to be thankful for all of what has been given to you, and try to share that cheer with others. I didn't see that many angry children yesterday so I didn't get a chance to pass out my lollipops (I usually do that when I'm on the Metro), and wish them well. People do it to my daughter whenever she has a tantrum/meltdown. I call it my way of giving the gift of silence for my fellow parents. lol
Of course I missed my opportunity to get out of bed in time to find somewhere to volunteer my time, but I do wish to at least donate my time around this time of year particularly around Christmas. If anyone wants to join me in assembling boxes please let me know. I have not found a location that will be putting together "Packages of Love and Hope," but if need be we can always use someone's basement to put together these packages. If you are interested please do not hesitate to contact me via this blog by posting a comment. Of course if there is a location that comes up I will definitely post an address of either a site where they are assembling, or where the assembly will take place. IF you do not wish to donate your time, or if you're a distance away from the Washington Metropolitan Area there are two ways that you can assist in this project. You can either donate by clicking on the "Let's Go Shopping" tab above and purchase non-perishable items that can be used to assemble these packages, or you can click the donate button (the one I use to ask for kind donations to sponsor this blog). To differentiate where the payments are to be allocated please write in the comments section of your donation "PACKAGES OF LOVE AND HOPE." There will be visual evidence of the assembling of the packages, and hopefully I can get other bloggers in the area to participate in this project.
Again Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and if you happen to be a party animal please be safe out there!
