Unabashed Solicitation

13 Dec

It is Christmas and some people need your help. Chose your family’s gifts carefully but give a little to a good cause. Should you be fortunate enough to be able to share and have no particular favorite charity I think this is a good one. I gave a small sum this morning and I hope you find it in your heart to give as well. Thanks for reading this. Best, Chas W5PG

    I have always been partial to the Salvation Army. Many WW2 GIs will tell you the SA helped them when the Red Cross refused.

    Happy New Year

      My father was one that always harbored ill will for Red Cross. His incident involved a Red Cross Canteen in Australia during WWII. He had been in New Guinea for some time in the bush and was refused (on his return to Au) coffee by the Red Cross. He was too dirty to serve. The canteen ended up with a lot of holes in the coffee urns.

      Best, Chas
