A holiday gift that counts

Dear Editor:Holiday shopping this year can be very simple. No dilemmas with what to buy for whom, no gas-wasting trip to Denver, no standing in line to pay postage on parcels, nor worries that something won’t fit …One check for the total of what would be spent on all those material goods, and a note in each card, “Your gift from me this year is a donation in your name to the American Red Cross Katrina Relief Fund” (or fire department fund or other associated cause). DONE!That’s what I’ll do this year. Here is an early wish to enjoy the blessings of the holidays! And hopefully, with enough help, others will be able to do so also.Sharon DeQuineAspen
