Christmas List for 2010

Not what you think - amidst all the retail madness, advertising, I am glad to say that I don't need anything this year. There are several things I can do without and have had to really test myself this year with the want vs. need argument constantly. I want things, but I don't need things. I used to shop every week. Now I feel guilty when it comes down to spending $2 more on drugstore shampoo/conditioner because I didn't get it on sale the prior week. My indulgences have been on food, because at the table is where I spend most of my valued time with my family/friends/sistahs/kasamas. I'm hoping that my friends and family will consider donating to these charities and organizations. Not only during the holidays, but year round. If not with $, with your time. These are just a few of the orgs I work with and have taken interest in within the Seattle area. =)
