Do something nice!

Do you want to do something nice for someone else this year?

Help Patti Lewis of Pennsylvania! (Click the title of this post to read the story!) Her son is a Marine stationed in Iraq and Patti is on a mission to send every soldier in her son's battaltion a big fat Christmas stocking filled with snacks and things they can use like foot pads, shooting glasses and maybe some electronic games to play while not on duty. She wants to get this done in time for Christmas but she can't do it alone.

Providing foot pads for these guys would total $5000, shooting glasses would be $100,000. And the cost of snacks, candy and electronic games would be much more!

If you want to donate, you can send a check to:

Fox Chase Bank
Mom 4 R Marines
4390 Davisville Rd.
Hatboro, PA 19040

or you can use paypal or your credit card and do it online by clicking here

I know finances are tight for many people, but there are also many who can afford to send a few bucks so if you are reading this and you can afford a few $$ that would be great. But remember that if you can't help Patti with money, why not do something nice in honor of them? Why not just do something nice? Why not donate some supplies to an animal shelter? Donate some of your old unused items sitting around the house (that you think are junk) to a local church charity store or animal shelter thrift store so they can sell these things and put the money back into their cause? Why not help a neighbor, coworker or stranger in need? Why not buy a homeless guy dinner? Why not donate a backpack full of school supplies to a school who has kids whose parents can't afford them? Why not donate your old car to the Boys ranch? Why not drop a few cans of food in the "food bank" barrel inside your local Publix?

We don't have to spend a lot of money or really any at all to help someone else. But you have to admit, helping someone else (whether it be animals or people) sure feels good!
