So it's Cyber Monday - a name given to the Monday after Thanksgiving - a name created by marketing companies to persuade people to spend more money. I don't care very much for advertisers. I'm not interested in marketing companies.
If you're interested in making a donation to the Salvation Army (and specifically to the Salvation Army of Newton, Iowa) you can do it today - on this Cyber Monday - with this online kettle. There's no annoying bell. There's no need to stand in the cold wind fishing into your pocket for loose change. You can do it safely, securely here.
The Salvation Army in Newton, Iowa works year round to meet human needs without discrimination - feeding the hungry, providing assistance for rent, utilities, and prescriptions. Providing emotional and spiritual care. And your donation will help us to help others.
This link is set up for donations to The Salvation Army of Newton, Iowa - but you can use the link to find a Salvation Army unit that is closer to you, if you like.
Or - if you'd actually like to purchase something today - something that you could give as a gift to a family member or a friend - might I suggest a beautiful photographic print. I have several photographs for sale - either as a digital download ($2.99) or as a professional quality 2' X 3' canvas print ($211). The proceeds of these sales are given to The Salvation Army of Newton, Iowa.
Again. Thank you for thinking of us.
