Thank you for sharing this information, James. Like so many, I casually throw money in the red pots from Thanksgiving to Christmas. A tradition. Something I’ve done all my life. An easy way to donate during the holidays. I know the Salvation Army is church and although I would never donate to any other church without intensely scrutinizing its doctrine, I donate to the Salvation Army Church the way I brush my teeth, automatically. No more.

I was always a writer but lived in a bookkeeper’s body before I found Medium and broke free — well, almost. Working to work less and write more.
