I'm a little upset this morning. Why am I upset this time? The warehouse of one of my favorite charities, The Empty Stocking Fund, was robbed a couple of days ago. The Empty Stocking Fund provides toys for underprivileged children in the Metro Atlanta area during the holiday season. They have been one of my favorite charities for about 5 years.

Apparently, when you are a thief, it does not matter who you steal from.
The thieves broke in thru a small window and made off with over $50,000 in toys meant to be distributed to needy children during holiday season.

What makes this story even crazier? The warehouse is in the same building as Atlanta City Hall and the Atlanta Police headquarters!

I will be donating a little extra this year to help them out. If you want to know more about the charity or donate, you can check them out here.

    Now that's a shame. I feel sorry for the person who did it. They are really pathetic.

    * Single Ma: It's ridiculous and I hope they catch the thief.
