Sweet Gift For The Salvation Army — An anonymous donor dropped 55 fresh $100 bills into a Salvation Army kettle deduced to have been stationed at a K-Mart in Fort Olglethorp, Ga. The money was desperately needed. Request for Army services in the area were up 30 percent in the area over the previous year.
A pox on all corporate bean-counters who forbid the Army from placing kettles outside their stores.
The Army is likely the most efficient major charity in the world.
