God grant me the serenity to change the things I can, to accept the things I cannot change, and the wisdom to know the difference.

We used to donate unwanted clothes to Goodwill but dont do that anymore.
Now we give them to family members and have them give them to the church or other people they know if they dont fit.

I commented in 2\2019, but a recent exchange has angered me.
An acquaintance needed community service hours. SA had a need, they matched up.

The people at SA were so rude, condescending, and patronizing of this 30 year old man.
They told him he deserved to suffer.
His crime was a parking lot dui. He was sleeping it off in his car. Still stupid, but not deserving of that level of shaming,

Wake up every day knowing you make the decision to begin your journey anew.

This choice in this moment defines now.
What is your now?

Personally, I play a lot in the casino, because I really like it. Thanks to reviews on aussiebestcasinos.com/reviews/fair-go-casi
no/
, I found a wonderful Fair Go Casino, which brings me good victories. And it is from these victories that I always transfer part of the money to charity, including the Salvation Army. It's very nice for me to do good. I advise everyone

Never. They actively discriminate against people like myself and my partner. There are less bigoted charities that actually work to help ALL people.

Yes. My family always had a commitment to Salvation Army because my dad's high school job was as a grocery store stockboy and he was impressed by seeing the SA staff always buying tons of food. I think they go directly to distributors these days, but it's like Charity Navigator - you want to give to organizations you KNOW are making good use of your money.

No, not after I learned about the money the people who run it make. The founder of McDonald's left them a billion and a half dollars, so they don't need my money.
I would rather buy sandwiches from Wendy's and give them to a homeless guy, so I know where my money has gone.
