More Happy Friday

Sent from reader, Jodi:

Happy, healthy, and safe Thanksgiving to you, your family, and your team/staff. Every year I send you a picture of our annual donation, and this year didn’t disappoint. We were able to deliver our stockpile to Between Friends Outreach, which services over 9,000 needy and homeless children and adults in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, and throughout Bucks County (Bucks County is mentioned in a lot of hallmark movies). Please pass this picture onto your staff as well.

As a teacher, mother of two beautiful children, wife, and school board member—with a husband who remains unemployed—I’ve been blessed that we can still donate to those who are less fortunate. Without your daily deals and alerts, none of this would be possible. Though you all love your job, I imagine there are times when you are exhausted trying to manage it all. It’s pictures like the one above that serve as examples that the work you do is beyond meaningful and making a difference in this world. Your endless dedication and service go beyond the latest alert. You all are truly making a difference in so many lives.

Thank you again, and I look forward to starting my shopping tomorrow for the 2021 donation drive.

Thank you, Jodi, for your wonderful submission! This certainly serves as an incredible reminder as to one of the reasons we love to do what we do and to see the positive impact it can create that goes beyond just our readers and their families! We appreciate your kindness and generosity in making that happen. 💕

    Please remember to donate to your local food bank or food pantry. They are experiencing unprecedented demands.

      Donate cash, not food. Food banks will buy in bulk so they can get more bang for their buck than you and I can.
