I have a new "game" I'm playing at work. Each day when I go out to buy lunch at the local Trader Joe's or Whole Foods, I'm buying one extra item.
My office building, like many others, is participating in a food drive for Thanksgiving in support of the East End House effort to hand out turkeys with all of the fixings this holiday season to people in need.
If I made my own lunch, I could probably rustle up something each day extra to put in my bag. But since I don't bring lunch, then those days when I get something at the store (instead of a take-out joint), I'm picking up a box of stuffing, or some instant potatoes, or maybe some powdered milk. It's only a few bucks each lunch that I'm less likely to notice and goes to a good cause.
Like the lottery says, "you have to play to win". Of course, the odds in my game are better. Every player's a winner.
