Today is Thanksgiving. I've been up since the wee hours getting the turkey & brisket into the smoker for dinner tonight.

On Thanksgiving people often consider what they are most thankful for in life. That question is easy for me.

I am most thankful for the health of my children. All other things pale in comparision to the fact that my daughters are healthy and free from disease, birth defects, or injuries.

Unfortunately, many parents are not so lucky with their children. So on this day of Thanksgiving, I urge you to consider them. is an organization devoted to helping children with HIV/AIDS. Through Angelwish, you can give directly to the children with this awful disease and make this holiday season a bit better for them.

Angelwish allows you to find children's HIV/AIDS programs near you and send gifts directly to the children. They use Amazon's gift service to allow the gift you buy to go directly the hospital where the child will recieve it.

I've donated several gifts to Miller Children's Hospital - Pediatric and Family HIV Center, a hospital here in Los Angeles. It's simple, you choose the hospital you want to help and follow the link to Amazon and choose a gift to send. With the gift option, the package goes directly to the hospital, not to a middleman.

I have never asked for donations on this site. There is no Paypal button or link to my Amazon wishlist. If you want to support my site, please consider donated a gift to a child with HIV/AIDS now. Also, please consider linking to Angelwish and urging others to donate to them.

Thanks and I hope you have a great Thanksgiving, I know I will!
