The greatest gifts are those of the Volunteers. The Hammer Barber people are are a goodly part of them. They found the time and the talent to donate and help raise funds for those in need. Branson went all out this past weekend to help raise $135,000 by ringing the bells on behalf of the Salvation Army's Red Kettle, Nationally there over over 25,000 bell ringers to get those small change donations. This fine organization helps serve more then 40 million people in need. Jim, the Ventriloquists across america are thankful to have you and your talent as part of that group, thank you for what you do. Those who wish to be included along with Jim go to your nearest Salvation Army Office and make it known that you also would like to be amongst those who do good things... I have done my share of raising single handedly along with my puppet friends to help raise many thousands of Dollars over the past many years for MDA, AIDS, and community fund raisers by phone... Everyone of us can do the same thing...Have a wonderful holiday and give someone you don't know the joy of the season.
