Welcome to the Thanksgiving season in America where businesses and charities share one goal: to separate you from your money.

For the next 40 days, you’ll be bombarded with ads that make you feel like you’re not doing enough as a person. The only way you can make amends for your personality deficiencies? Buy something glitzy for your loved ones or donate to charity. That’s the ticket!

Rather than make you feel like an impostor to obtain a donation for a cause that’s important to my heart, I’m going to take a few days and tell you where I’ve spent my cash to make the world a better place. Hopefully, you’ll follow suit.

So stay tuned for Monday’s post on where to spend your holiday dollar bills in 2018. In a noisy market that wants your attention, I promise to make recommendations that change lives and alleviate your guilt for being a piece of crap throughout the year.

You gotta love the psychology of American capitalism.

    I hope you will consider recommending donations of time, supplies, and money to local nonprofit animal shelters and rescues.
