As the Holiday Season gets closer I start thinking about ways I can try to make a difference, hmmmmmm.
Last year I donated canned goods and a "Shaws" (that's one of the local grocery stores up here) gift certificate for a turkey to my church & we donated canned goods to the RI Food bank at work and I think I'll be doing those two things again this year, I hate to think about little children and families going without any time of the year.
I know that I will be going to the local Recruiting Station to donate to the USMC Toys For Tots Drive & I'll be wearing my "My Son Is A United States Marine" sweatshirt!!!!
I also want to sponsor a care package through MarinesParents.com, the packages will be sent to Marines in Iraq & Afghanistan all throughout the Holiday Season :) I've already picked up a few boxes of Christmas cards, those will be filled out addressed and mailed in bulk to the MarineParents.com HQ, those will be going out to Marines all over the Mideast...so that's how I am going to try to make a difference this year.
And I thought I'd leave Santa this little note on Christmas Eve...............
