'Tis the season to be jolly for sure, but we are also reminded to give to the less fortunate. You'll see the Salvation Army still ring their bell, although now it seems to toll for sexual intolerance. We also have countless non profits and volunteers working to facilitate some sort of gifting to the needy(usually in the form of food drives). It makes us feel good and puts us in a guilt free spirit.
I like to call this the Christmas in a Bag program. I realize its a sensitive topic to criticize good will, but I have reservations as to how effective these one time handouts are and whether there is a true nutritional value in the contents(like canned peaches and Rice Crispy snacks). I get it, Its a gesture; a symbolic representation of what the poor fundamentally requires.
