Someone Dropped $10,000 in a Salvation Army Bucket

Someone dropped a hundred $100 bills in a Salvation Army Kettle in Portland, Oregon last Wednesday.  That's $10,000 in cash. The Salvation Army gets almost 40% of its annual donations from those red buckets they set up outside grocery stores during the holidays.  So all the bell-ringing can be annoying, but it's worth it.And they just got a very BIG donation last week. On Wednesday, volunteers checked a red kettle that was set up outside a grocery store in Portland, Oregon.  And there was a $100 bill on top.  Then they realized it wasn't the ONLY $100 bill in there. It turned out someone had walked by and tossed a HUNDRED $100 bills in the bucket.  If you're not great at math, that's TEN THOUSAND BUCKS.It's the largest single donation they've ever gotten in the Portland area. 

What His Holiday Gift Really Says About Your Relationship Status

When you’re in a relationship with a new guy, the gift he gives you during the holiday season can give you some insight into how he feels about you.While it’s true that money doesn’t matter, you should pay close attention to the thought and time he put into the present. Here are some other clues for you:

1. A gift card of low denomination

It means he considers you... and that’s about it (unless he is broke, then it is more meaningful). He wants you to feel acknowledged but he’s not about to go crazy for you. This is a good “early dating” gift, but if you have stronger feelings for him, you’ll be disappointed by the less personal gift.

2. A gift card of high denomination

He wants you to feel spoiled for whatever reason (to gain favor with you, make you feel noticed or impress you), but it’s not personal. It’s not the gift that says, “You are the one for me” or “You are the person I love.”  Unless you’re difficult to shop for.

3. Something sexy, like toys or clothing

This means he utterly wants every inch of you, sees you as “his present,” and wants to indulge in you. He may be very serious about you (or not), but in any case, he's entranced by you sexually.

4. An experience, like a weekend getaway or spa day

This man really cares about you. Deeply. A spa day to yourself is an extremely thoughtful gift. Same with a manicure and pedicure. A weekend getaway says I want time with you. I want more of you. I want to make you happy. Gifts of “experiences” are really gifts that come from someone who thinks highly of you and cares.

5. Something homemade
Well, this has to be the sweetest gift you could get. This is from someone who adores you and wants you as more than a fool-around friend or side piece. This is someone who is considering you highly. And if it’s dinner, I hope he’s a good cook.

6. Something incredibly random

It can be a few things: He’s a horrible gift giver, he left it to the last-minute, or he doesn’t know you and doesn’t care to be too thoughtful. Based on those things, you can decide whether to be upset or shrug it off.

7. A personalized gift
Photo albums. Frames. Whatever the case may be, personalized gifts are nostalgic and sweet. They’re not coming from your homeboy down the street who likes to text you for hookups and nude selfies. They’re from someone who wants to reach in and touch your heart. Be impressed.

8. A self-serving gift

He says you need to lose weight, so he buys you a gym membership. He says you need nicer sexier panties, so he buys you some. In this case, he’s a bit selfish and is pushing his agenda. Although, in truth, exercise is good for everyone and so are sexy panties.

You know the situation best, whether to dump him or appreciate the nudge.

9. Clothing

This is an impersonal gift. It’s a practical, helpful gift, but unless it’s lingerie or a sexy dress he wants you to wear to an art showing, it’s impersonal. He thinks enough about you to pick out something nice, so don’t push it off. It’s a nice gift that took time and some thought.

10. Something cheap (but he has money)

This is a sign of someone who is either cheap or just wants to get laid. In any case, move along.

11. Jewelry

This guy wants to impress you! And it means he’s invested somewhat too. Sure, a narcissist could buy you diamonds and drop you in a heartbeat, but jewelry gifts say you matter. This guy thinks you are seriously amazing. Enjoy that gift, girl.

12. Nothing at all

Screw him. Even a broke guy can make you dinner. Case closed.
