Thanksgiving is a day to be grateful for what you have and to think about giving back to others. In the spirit of giving, thousands of well-meaning people search for opportunities to volunteer at soup kitchens or food banks on Thanksgiving day each year.
Here’s why you shouldn’t.
“If you really want to volunteer, pick any day, but don’t pick Thanksgiving or the day after Thanksgiving,” said Eileen Heisman, CEO and President of the National Philanthropic Trust.
It may seem counterintuitive to argue that you shouldn’t volunteer on a day that literally has “giving” in the name, but Heisman explained that many charities, especially smaller ones, can be overwhelmed by an influx of one-time volunteers. It takes charities time and resources to train volunteers, she said, and making a long-term commitment is the best way to help.
Mary Lou Bozza, director of development at Haley House, a nonprofit that runs a soup kitchen in Boston, said that while charities do have volunteering lulls, the holidays aren't one of them.She suggested finding other ways to give back, like donating to a holiday clothing drive.
Heisman also encouraged people in the giving spirit to donate their time or money on #GivingTuesday, a global charitable campaign on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.
“Giving money is always wonderful,” she said. “If you do have the ability to raise money, think about giving a cash gift.”

To the 1% of the nation that protects the other 99%. WE'VE been at war for 16 years now. If you forgot it's because you aren't being affected. Some people can't forget. You're welcome..
So at least buy a comedy CD to show your respect.
You deserve it, and it costs less than your Freedom. ;-)
*The Harlem Hellfighters were an African-American infantry unit in WWI who spent more time in combat than any other American unit. Despite their courage, sacrifice and dedication to their country, they returned home to face racism and segregation from their fellow countrymen.

RIP Mr Gillotti. You were the first club owner to hire me as an opening act while I was still in college. Thank you for helping me believe in my talent. God bless. Mystro.
Performers booked at Gilly’s through the years include a host of local groups and a laundry list of national acts that include Tony Bennett, Diane Schuur, BB King, Wynton Marsalis, Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, Bill Evans, George Benson, Herbie Hancock, Count Basie, Bobby Blue Bland and Stevie Ray Vaughn.
Jerry Gillotti “was one of a kind, really focused on supporting musicians, treating his customers fairly, and providing a quality level of jazz and blues beyond anything we could ever expect,”. “So many musicians owe so much to him.”
In his nomination of Jerry Gillotti to the Dayton Walk of Fame, Leppla said Gillotti became one of the greatest jazz and blues promoters in the United States. After a successful run on North Main Street, Jerry moved Gilly’s to the Dayton Transportation Center. In addition, Jerry hosted a Sunday morning jazz show for several years on WING-AM radio.
Heartfelt tributes to Mr. Gillotti have been posted on Facebook as well.

Shooting endangered animals as a contribution to conservation efforts sounds like the greatest oxymoron of all time, yet it is that reasoning our current administration used to back up its proposal to allow elephant parts obtained through hunting in Zimbabwe and Zambia to be taken home as trophies.
The outcry prompted the administration to reverse its stance the next day.

THE CALLBACK podcast - Mystro Clark pt.2:
Welcome to the home of Uncle Mystro
Mystro Clark has been in the comedy game for over 20 years. He started in Dayton, Ohio and moved to Los Angeles after earning a Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology. Mystro quickly got noticed at comedy clubs around LA and the country for his powerful comedy routines. He has since appeared on numerous television shows and movies starting with his first weekly series, a skech comedy show called The Newz in 1994. Mystro has performed on all the major networks including three appearances on HBO, and BET including a One Hour Special.
Mystro has also acted and written for many shows. His first weekly starring role on a network sitcom was on Fox's THE SHOW, where he played energetic talk show host "Wilson Lee. From there Mystro went on to play guest star and starring roles on over 30 TV shows and films, such as the indy film "Shrink" with Robin Williams, and Kiki Palmer.
Mystro was also chosen as the weekly host of Soul Train from 97-2000 after Don Cornelius retired. After breaking into the hosting market Mystro was also picked to host the long running syndicated travel show Awesome Adventures, which he did for another ten years. Mystro has traveled all over the world teaching kids and adults adventure sports and vacation tips.
Multi-talented and ever busy Mr. Clark has also written for shows such as Cousin Skeeter on Nickelodeon. He's also an accomplished voice actor, credited on the "Men in Black" computer game. Mystro has also produced numerous music and comedy CD's of which his "Sexy, Funny, Bastard" is considered a comedy classic by fans.
It is no wonder Mystro has signed Talent Deals with Disney, Warner Brothers and Fox Studios over the years, he reportedly still has the record for one of the biggest talent deals ever given to an African American comedian.
Staying true to his 100% mentality, Mystro recently took time away from the entertainment spotlight to deploy to Iraq with his Army Reserve unit for a year. Mystro is also an 18 year Army veteran. While he was in the combat zone he decided to record an impromptu comedy show for his fellow Soldiers and Marines. That show turned into two shows, which is now his latest comedy CD: "LIVE in Iraq" JOKES, ROCKETS, and BULLETS", availble now.
When asked why he took
time off from his busy career to answer the call of duty in a warzone Mystro replied;
"...Because it was time to take a break. After 20 years of doing comedy and acting, I needed to refill my cup with some real life experiencs, and getting shot at in the desert is a real life or death experience. It makes you focus on whats important to you. I'm a real Soldier this ain't acting. I'm MR 100%, I don't just talk about, it I live it".
