Be a Santa to a Senior

I was at a press conference this week for a wonderful program called Be a Santa to a Senior. I hadn't heard of it before.

At Christmas, there are some charities I always give to. However, I also try to mix it up--there are just so many good ones to give to. I almost always give to groups assisting needy children or families and frankly, rarely give a second thought to needy seniors alone on Christmas. Regrettably, I always think about kids.

This year, I plan to take part in the Be a Santa to a Senior program. This is a nationwide program helping low or no-income, desolate, seniors who have no one on Christmas. I know we're all busy, and sometimes only have time to give and not "do" during the holidays, and you'll be glad to know that participating in this program is EASY.

Just go to your local Walgreens store and pick an ornament off the Be a Santa to a Senior tree (usually near the entrance). The senior will have picked out a few items they would like and/or need--things like socks, reading glasses, candy, etc. Simply pick up those items, and any extra items you'd like to give, pay at th counter, and give them to the cashier at Walgreens. The Be a Santa to a Senior folks pick up the gifts, wrap them, and deliver them.

Click here to view their website and to find the nearest Walgreens to you participating (Indy folks--ALL Indy area Walgreens are participating). If you can't financially contribute, the website has details on how you can help wrap and deliver.

We ALL have loved ones or people we know in nursing homes. Head to your local Walgreens today!

I am planning to arrive in luwr Paris by the Train from London via the English Channel. I wanted to know whether it is advisable to stay at the Sheraton Airport Hotel in Paris if I want to go sight-seeing to Eiffel Tower and Louvre Museum and the Bridge in Paris. Also, how long would it take to cover the whole of Paris (sight-seeing)? Is there any particular tour of Paris that I should be aware of? Please advise..

Hi there are using Wordpress for your blog platform? I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying to get started and create my own. Do you require any html coding knowledge to make your own blog? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

This is the right blog for anyone who wants to find out about this topic. You realize so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I actually would want...HaHa). You definitely put a new spin on a topic thats been written about for years. Great stuff, just great!

Hello.This post was extremely remarkable, particularly because I was browsing for thoughts on this subject last couple of days.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

I'm extremely impressed along with your writing talents and also with the format on your blog. Is this a paid subject matter or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it’s rare to see a great blog like this one nowadays..

Good job right here. I actually enjoyed what you had to say. Keep going because you certainly bring a new voice to this subject. Not many people would say what you've said and still make it interesting. Nicely, at least Im interested. Cant wait to see much more of this from you.

Hi there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my twitter group? There's a lot of people that I think would really enjoy your content. Please let me know. Many thanks

Says: holy cow at June 6, 2012 05:27 PM

Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you're working with? I'm going to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

Says: holy cow at June 7, 2012 02:21 AM

Thank you for another informative web site. Where else could I get that type of information written in such a perfect way? I've a project that I am just now working on, and I have been on the look out for such info.

Hello just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the images aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.
