I was just preparing a post before I sign off temporarily for Christmas, which I shall post in a moment. In writing that post I paused for a moment to think about those who will not be having a great Christmas this year. Initially my thoughts turned to the McCann family, but of course there are so many others who will not have a great Christmas.
So saving any sanctimonious message from me, and if you should feel so inclined, please take a moment to check out these web pages, and if you are not so poor that you have some money spare two days before Christmas, then please donate at the appropriate site, (none of which are privately or Professionally connected to myself or this blog). Alternatively, if you can't face another Christmas TV schedule, the below pages have suggestions of plenty of ways you could help by donating your time. Hopefully, the oxygen of publicity from my hundreds of thousands of readers, [ahem], will also help in a small way this Christmas.
Please have a look at the below, which have been included in no particular order. Feel free to include your choices of worthy charities that might like to attract some attention this Christmas in the comments of this post.
