Here is the lovely Yarn Harlot talking about funny things and about charity. I would like to take a moment today to encourage you to donate your time, extra belongings, and/or money to the charity of your choice. During this financial crisis, lots of non-profits are hurting and they can use all the help that you can offer. We are all going through a hard time right now, but there is always someone going through something worse than you. I know that sounds cliche, but it is true. There are still some shopping days before Christmas (or your respective holiday or we might be a little late here for your holiday...no matter), go and buy some food for a food bank, donate some clothes that you don't wear anymore, go help out at a soup kitchen, write out a check (even if it is for just a few bucks), or even go caroling and make someone smile. It's good for the karma and good for the soul.
