Proof Positivity: What Are Your Plans?

10-1-2008-24712-pm216Next week those of us who are American will be celebrating Thanksgiving.  On Wednesday night my mom and I usuallt stay up all night to cook.  The turkey cooks all night long and buy the time we pull it out on Thanksgiving day the thing falls off the bone and it is so moist it almost melts in your mouth.  There is no turkey better than my mom’s  turkey.  I’ve had turkey from various resteraunts and even a fancy hotel at the beginning of the week.  It’s ok but not great.  My mom’s turkey is great I’m happy we eat it on Christmas too. 

I’m running late aggg!  I need to get on with some positive news and stop talking!

Charity Highlights Tis The Season

Toys for Tots gets toys out to kids in need.  “The mission of the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve Toys for Tots Program is to collect new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December each year, and distribute those toys as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community in which the campaign is conducted.”

Coats for Kids Some kids need coats for those colder months the mission for Coats for Kids is “To ensure that every child that needs a winter coat recieves one.”

Salvation Army There is a lot more going on with The Salvation Army than the buckets at Christmas.  They have a charity for missing children, disaster relief, and drug rehabilitation.

Charity Navigator rates you favorite charities and it is a good idea to check here to make sure the charity is ligitamate as well.

You can be an elf and give gift to kids.

You can Make A Wish come true.  This is a charity for kids that may not have a chance.  You can volunteer your time or donate money.  It takes more than money to run a charity.
