Helping hand

Members of the Salvation Army are soliciting donations this week in front of department stores in Tokyo’s Ginza district.

    The tradition began in England over 100 years ago, and gradually apread to many far reaching communities. . . .With the economy at a stand still here, there are many who will benefit from the donations . . . God bless the dedication of these Sally Ann workers.

    I love to see people still help people. As semperfi says "God bless these Sally Ann workers": I always try to give something to legitimate, reputable charities. And, if your handle means what I think it does, lets have a shout out to the U.S. Marines for their annual Toys-for-tots campaigns. Seeing those Marines in their dress blues at ramrod attention next to a box for collecting toys for needy children always choked me up. I have bought a new toy for their collection many times.

    Very nice to see ... please support them if they see them.

    Every little bit can help.

    Good on them. Whilst I don't support any religions, I wish these Salvos all the best - they have most likely battled and beaten personal problems ie alcohol abuse, poverty, homelessness etc - and are now trying to help others in need.

    I read somewhere that a higher percentage of a donation to the SA goes to a needy recipient than any other major charitable organization. I feel good giving to them, and knowing it will actually help someone.

    Wow, I didn't know they have a Salvation Army here! I used to donate to them when I was in the states.

    My kids are older now so I'm going to have them give to the Toys-for-Tots this year.

    It would be cool if the lady was playing a shamisen instead of that brass instrument. Looks like the a euphonium or something similar. Anyway, I would toss a few hundred yen in.
