A good idea

Full-page ad in today's Times - a nice idea though an unappealing design. (The wishbone looks better this size than full newspaper page-sized.)

LET'S
REDEFINE
CHRISTMAS.

BY PUTTING MORE THANKSGIVING IN IT.

No sooner does Thanksgiving end, than the chaotic shopping season begins - a monthlong compulsion to buy something, anything, for everyone.
We're pressed. We're stressed. And we waste time and money on gifts that might have little meaning.

Consider giving people donations to their favorite charities And request that they give a donation to your favorite charity.

Imagine if we did give to charities for Christmas instead of smothering each other with useless stuff. More, if we learned what charities our loved ones and friends support. What conversations this would start! How our understanding of the world's needs, and of our friends' and loved ones' most cherished values, would grow!
