They all spent Thanksgiving around a table with their families giving “thanks” and probably “giving” as well.

Not only during the holiday season, but throughout the year, I truly believe that everyone

Something must have gone wrong somewhere along the way. Maybe my little bit of money will get them a ride on the bus or a warm cup of coffee; perhaps a pair of socks or a warm blanket?
