It’s just about Thanksgiving time which is one of my favorite holidays. The cool air, the family, the food…you just can’t beat it. We all have a lot to be thankful for. We work in an industry we love where there is growth unlike a lot of other sectors which are experiencing record declines.
For the last couple of years i’ve tried to do things for other less fortunate families at Thanksgiving time. If you recall last years post Flagged & Removed For Christmas I bought a family that couldn’t afford it a full Thanksgiving dinner. This year i’m sponsoring 2 families and buying them complete Thanksgiving dinners and all the trimmings. This post isn’t meant to brag because in fact I never much cared what people thought of me. The purpose of writing this is simple.
If you have the means I’d like to ask that you do something similar. It’s not that expensive and can really lift a families spirits. I don’t really like formal charities for a number of reasons. Actions like these are a more direct way of helping people in your community. We don’t need more government programs and increased taxes to help people; we just need to go out there and do it!
Are you with me?
