Do you throw your change in the kettle?

The Salvation Army kettle that is. I wandered around the Salvation Army's website today, they have some wonderful programs. If you are interested in how the Red Kettle got started in 1891 you can read about it here. If you frequent the Beachside Publix you have seen the bell ringer there, she is a volunteer like all the bell ringers. Her name is Trish and she has given countless hours to ring that bell. She is the only one I have seen there and she has been ringing that bell day and night. When you walk by throw in your change and say hi, even if you don't throw in your change, say hi..... she is a real nice gal.
