Happy Thanksgiving from The Randy Report
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
At The Randy Report I talk a lot about politics and political "positions" people have.
The official policies here are definitely "pro-Thanks" and "pro-Giving."
It's very easy for so many to enjoy this day. Whether wealthy or not, most of us have family, friends and a warm place to be today. I'm thankful that's the case for me and my family today.
But there are many less fortunate. Today I'm thinking of LGBT kids who have been turned out of their homes because their families won't accept them for who they are. And they become homeless. And that's just the beginning of a terrible journey so these kids in crisis.
The mission of the Ali Forney Center in NYC is to protect lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning (LGBTQ) youth from the harm of homelessness, and to support them in becoming safe and independent as they move from adolescence to adulthood. The Center is committed to providing these young people with safe, dignified, nurturing environments where their needs can be met, and where they can begin to put their lives back together.
I humbly ask you to please take one minute - 60 seconds - and consider what a small donation could mean to help these young people.
If you feel so moved, click over to the Ali Forney Center website and consider this worthy organization when you think of "giving" today. No amount is too small to help.
I'm thankful every day that I get to share, post and pontificate here on The Randy Report. Hopefully I entertain a bit, help crack a smile, and every now and then inform.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for being here.
Happy Happy everyone!
