How To Stretch Your Donation Dollar

It's #GivingTuesday and that means it's time to send a few dollars to a movement, mission or cause you believe in. Most givers consider causes that have been a part of their lives for months or years such as giving to cancer, prostate or heart research. Others give to the local community agencies to finance shelters for the homeless. Still, Others are moved to contribute to #CrowdFunding causes from friends, coworkers, business associates, and relatives. One thing is certain, there is a great and dire need for your support.

Many put off giving because they don't realize how far a few dollars can go. Here are some examples

1. $2.50 can buy a loaf of bread and feed a household for a day.

2. $5 can buy 2-3 gallons of gas for one food truck feed hundreds in one week.

3. Donating one used car can net $1500 t0 $4000 and feed the homeless in one community for a month.

4. Donating a coat can save a life on a bitterly cold night.

5. Giving a $20 bill to a street musician can help him pay his rent and keep him off the streets

6. Giving to shelters can help lower the crime rate, save on hospitalization resources, tax dollars for victims of crime and incarceration, maintain or improve property value and thus improve the economy overall.

Giving is no small thing. And as they say, what goes around comes around exponentially. That said, make #GivingTuesday something really special for you and yours. Find out for yourself the truth behind these words... "There is more happiness in giving than in receiving."

It's all for the children.

Funny Family Reunion Jokes Quotes and Rhymes

What have 100 eyes, likes to mashup in a big bunch and say CHEESE?
A big fat family reunion photo shoot. 

You know you're getting old when you stoop to tie your shoes and wonder what else you can do while you're still down there.

Families are like fudge .. mostly sweet with a few nuts.

“I’m here to talk about our family, but you know what they say, 'If you can't say something nice...' so, thank you all for coming!"

When your kids grandparents tell you to go easy on the kids like they were easy on you -it's not wisdom, age or experience. It's senility.

What do you call it when you have to run around with one foot in a sack, a spoon with an egg in your hand, and an apple in your mouth? A family reunion relay race.

My family is like trail mix. You got your raisins, dates and a variety of nuts.

The reason grandchildren and grandparents get along so well is that they have a common enemy.

The real reason grandparents like to stop to admire the flowers, gaze at the sky, and chat with the neighbors while taking a walk is not because they are sweet, kind and love nature. It's because if they didn't stop now and then they would run out of breath trying to keep up with their grandchildren.

My grandfather walked for miles when he was 60... Now he's 97 years old and we still haven't found him yet.

I overheard my father say to my mother... "I like YOUR mother-in-law better than I like mine.” 

Grandparents can do amazing tricks their children cannot do. They can make their teeth  disappear. They can make things look ten times bigger than they are. They can tell you things about your parents no one else knows. They can read your mind and tell you just what you are thinking before you go and do something really stupid. 

There goes another apple falling from the family tree.

My parents finally confessed that I was adopted. They said, "But the adoption didn't work out, They brought you back."

The real reason grandparents move to Florida is to escape babysitting.


Where would we be if it weren't for family?


Like eagles we fly, glide and soar
Like whales we swim the vast ocean floor
When we've swum further than we have before
Family pulls us safely back to shore


Where's the best place to be when you skin your knee? 
In grandma's lap 
or grandpa's knee. 
There is no place else I'd rather be
than dangling from my family tree.
