Thanks for Giving

On a local radio station, every Thanksgiving - 710 KIRO The Dori Monson show does a charity turkey thing and deep fries the turkeys. The money goes to a homeless shelter and a Snohomish County battered women's shelter. After hearing this I went to the shelters website and took a look at their wish list. Gotta say - it was pathetic. Pathetic because the things that they are wishing for are such BASIC items. Please remember others this year and give your time, money or needed items this year (maybe with some tax return money). It does your heart good. Behold their wish list:
1. Gift Certificates - Pizza (enables the women and children in the shelter to have a special treat)2. Gift Certificates - Clothing stores (Old Navy, Fred Meyer, Target, Kmart, Walmart)
3. Gift Certificates - Shoes (Payless)
4. Gift Certificates - Food stores (Safeway, Albertsons, etc)
5. Gift Certificates -Transportation: bus passes or prepaid gas cards for job/home hunting
