Growing up the way we did (see: the-pessimistic-optimist), I have developed a special appreciation for the Marine Corps Toys-for-Tots program.
Today – and every holiday season – I am thankful for the USMC and their program. It helps so many children know that, Yes – there is a Santa Clause. He’s just not always dressed in a red suit with a long white beard. Sometimes, he is in a dress blue uniform or even camouflage.
Please, take a minute to read the history of the program and find a donation point.
I am planning on volunteering a few hours this year, as we found out yesterday that LCPL Dork won’t be home for Christmas this year.
Again, what are you thankful for?
