The hard times are hitting a lot of sectors and as far as giveaways and promotional items that used to be given away for free to spending shoppers to save on cost. So in the process, no free turkey means lesser or no more food to be given to charity.
It is apparent that some people donate part of these turkeys to charity so that the unfortunate can likewise enjoy Thanksgiving. But if a home itself at these days can no longer afford to buy one or get one free, how can charities be given food particularly turkeys which are known to symbolize the season.
It looks like each season or celebration will be hit hard. Apparently there will be adjustments and while charities should be logically excluded as much as possible, it simply does not follow.
So perhaps it would be better to find some other ways to celebrate Thanksgiving and charities have no choice but to follow as well. It is a situation that none of us want to be in but as long as the economic crisis continue to affect the world and the global economy, no one is spare and this includes charity institutions and charitable acts.
