Forum Post: Holiday Bake Sale

OWS should think about throwing a holiday bake sale to benefit the homeless, giving all the proceeds to the Salvation Army. Perhaps we could hold this at Columbus Circle. I mean surely Mayor Bloomberg would have no problem with this being for such a good cause. We could have enlarged pictures of the many tent cities that have popped up across the country with families living in them, asking mayor Bloomberg if he was going to evict them too! Also, how about a Holiday mingle along 5th Ave. singing modified caroles and new appropiate chants (if they are not religious) and singing religious Christmas caroles as well, and once again bringing to light the plight of the homeless. Yes, 5th Ave. would be a great place to have this. I mean all the times that I have been in the City lately and I haven't even seen the Tree yet.

I'd skip the Salvation Army and give it straight to the homeless.

People aren't supposed to do that. The homeless people will spend it on whatever they want. We are supposed to be in fear of them. Instead we should donate to someone else's overhead. That is just me.
