It's The Time Of The Season...

"It is every man's obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes from it."

-Albert Einstein

Back in early September, just after Hurricane Katrina ravaged the gulf coast region, I added a link to the American Red Cross to my sidebar on my AOL Journal Ellipsis. It felt good that day to share with all those who come by to read my musings and to see my photography a little more about who I am and what I support. Charities have always been very important to me, I have supported a number of them over the years. The Red Cross has taken such a beating this past autumn, and it continues to need support. This holiday season, I urge you to give what you can...even if it is just a link in your sidebar and the good hopes in your heart. I will be adding more charities on the 24th of each month to my sidebar, and choosing one among the new ones I add to highlight through an entry. My next charities update will be Christmas Eve. I think that is a very good time to speak of the needs of mankind. Will you consider joining me, by posting an entry on Christmas Eve that brings awarensess to a charity you support? Be sure to send me a link, so I can come by and read what you write. We are all in this world together.

Always, Carly

Have a wonderful holiday Carly. Thank you for sharing your thoughts. You put into words the things that I think but can't manage to verbalize at times. Thank you. Pamela

Your thoughtfulness and care for your fellow mankind is one of your endearing qualities. What a great thing to do re the charities. Hapy belated Thanksgiving, my friend.

you named some awesome charities, a few of which I support. :-)

this is the time of year I especially like to give to the Food Panties, the Homeless Shelters, and the Animal Shelters.

I also love to get involved with a local charity called "presents for patients". I sign up to supply a holiday visit and a couple presents to 2 elderly people (or mentally challenged people) each year. I take the kids with me, and I have them give out candy canes to the other residents. It's a special time.

I would love to write about my charities. I have done some in the past, but I think it's overdue for me to do so again.

you are a thoughtful, loving, sweet lady & I'm so happy to know you.

love, anna
