Well gang..its that time of the year again..It is my Birthday (Jan. 20) and you know what that means. It is time to get off your ass and buy me a present. That’s right damn it, and this year I want a lot more presents than last year. And just because you gave me a present last year doesn’t get you off the hook for a bigger one this year. What is on my list this year? No it’s not donations to Haiti or giving your car to WVXU or giving away your old junk to Good Will.
NOPE. I want the same stuff as you gave me last year on my birthday: All you have to do is grab a few canned goods, some household items, maybe some slightly used blankets..stuff like that and go to your local FOOD BANK/HOMELESS SHELTER and donate it. 2008 was the worst for the dislocated, the mentally ill, the lost and those suffering from drugs or running from abuse since the great depression. In 2009 even more people were in need for shelter, clothes and food than last year. In 2010 the government, Non-profits, Temples, Mosques, and Churches will be hard pressed to help more than last. The economy has hit our support services hard.
So instead of giving me those box seat season tickets to the Reds…take a few bucks and turn it in to something that will make a big difference in the day of a another person, one who is not that different you or me. So if you don’t want me to go BONZO on you please participate. There is so much aid going to Haiti (and they need it) that local food banks and shelters actually lose donations in these times of great disasters. Give now, give plenty, and give often.
