phone tag-you're it!
I just received yet another new and immproved cell phone. I have been saving my phones, since they are all in working condition... Than I came upon an idea, one that I feel is apropos for "Forgotten Ones Fund". I remember how many times I have been in a situation that I wish I could have had a cell phone to call for help.

I never realized how warm coats, gloves, sweaters, that were in my closet, could bring such a bright smile of gratefulness. It could be the catalyst for many a sad and lonely person on this Holiday season. To be alone is bad enough, but to be alone, and cold
