If I had extra money I would do what the State Bank & Trust in Fargo N.D. has done. The Bank Gives full-time Employees $1,000 to Spend on Needy. They are not allowed to keep the money and I doubt they would even consider that. While having an extra 1K would be awesome for me - it would be a lot more fun to give it away to people that need it more than I do. Just last night I was shopping at Walmart buying some candy (stocking) and dog food when I kept coming across a woman that was doing her Christmas shopping. In her cart were the lower cost baby dolls and other generic style toys. Later I saw her buying the same generic style cereal. Maybe she was just thrifty - ? - but I didn't get that sense from her. Yeah, Christmas doesn't have to be about buying a bunch of stuff and blah blah blah... tell that to some kids that get nothing. It would have been so rewarding and just plain cool to be able to give people like her a couple hundred dollars.
