Salvation Army Personalities

>> Sunday, December 14, 2008

It is the time of year for those Salvation Army collectors. They are in front of grocery stores, department stores and malls. They ring their bells to remind us they are there and, if we are lucky, they thank us.

But I have noticed some Salvation Army Collectors are special. They have energy and talent. They have charisma.

They ring the bell and dance. They sing carols and while they are not American idols, they are pretty much on-key. They laugh. And, most amazing of all, they work all day for free. A great example of being nontoxic at a time of year that can bring out the toxic in all of us.
