What an excellent way to use your gifts to help others. I know the recipients of these boxes will truly appreciate them

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

You are a very generous person and I look forward to your documentation of your process.

If you are looking forward to expanding your horizon, there are likely needy kids that could use a present under their Christmas tree.

I see you take the time to use your talents for what is important to you.
A good steward. Those simple little boxes have character, with simple beauty.
Cool Malcolm.......

Good on 'ya kywoodchopper ...

At a time where the press are having a field day with all of the bad news around the planet, it's refreshing to have your faith in human nature reinforced.

Once again, good on 'ya, and very well done

I could have added...our woodworking club makes wooden toys, or in my case boxes, for little kids for Christmas each year. Generally around 800 to 1,200. These we pass to The Salvation Army to pass out.

Some of the folks that I have given boxes and baskets to - baskets have gone to 3-girls that were raped, the youngest was 4-years old; children who has both parents in prison; numerous kids with cancer; ladies with cancer; one lady had lost 2-young sons to drugs within 4-months; one lady was in an Assisted Living facility and since she was black none of the others would associate with her; two sisters that had breast cancer. We never know what is going on in the world other that what we see on TV. I don't have time for TV.

A super big hand for you and your generosity, Malcolm.
I'll anxiously be waiting for your explanation on box construction.

We, woodworkers are everywhere!!!
