Out at Target, in at TVHarmony
Most people have heard by now that Target has banned the Salvation Army from putting out their kettles this year which will make it much more difficult for them to raise funds. I can, at times, understand the business reason for this at Target, but it's still a shame.
Hearing the bellringers outside stores is something I can remember even as a little pup, and it's indelibly etched in my memory along with all those other religious and secular symbols of the holiday season. While shopping malls and mega-parking strip malls have in many places replaced the downtown square, the Salvation Army has moved along with them. I guess courtrooms and boardrooms are a little harder to navigate.
We don't have the ringing wav file, but we do have a link as our featured sponsor, so if you feel inclined, feel free to use it to make a small donation.
