Ahhhh! Black Friday!
As many rush out to do x-mas shopping, I will do mine sitting at home on the computer. When I think about celebrating the birth of Christ I think of the compassion he extended to all, not consumer electronics. So, instead of dumping more "stuff' into the lives of the people I love, I donate in their name to a charitable organization. While there might be a few awkward moments when you tell your loved ones that you bought a lama in their name for a family in Peru, your gift could make a huge difference in someones life. Chickens for a family in Cameron or a small business loan to a family in Bolivia, to me, pails in comparison to the latest gadget or shiny new shoes.
