Toys for Tots came today to pick up their boxes.
I guess historically, LA is the largest giver, followed by Chicago. This year however, Detroit just may surpass Chicago. I'd say pretty exciting except it just goes to show you how dire our situation is here in Michigan.
I'm definitely a tad disappointed by Congress however the UAW isn't the only one at fault. Don't even get me started on the whole bank bailout.
Given all these circumstances, Nate and I are trying to give more than we ever have before.
I am so thankful to have a job, and couldn't imagine not giving this season when there are so many people without.
At Nate's company, they adopted 4 families this year. In years past, they only had 2 and had a hard time getting things on their wish list. Not only did they adopt 2 more families this year, but almost all the items were collected for.
The socialist in me is very pleased at how people are trying to do what they can to help out those less fortunate than others this year. It's a shame though that it had to come to such circumstances for some of us to reach out. I think though that this is just the beginning of what we are going to be able to achieve in the next weeks, months, and years to come.
