I remember doing this many years ago in school, but totally forgot about this for years .... shame it isn't more widely publicised to people outside of schools and churches would loved to have done a box

    People at my school did it. I wanted to do one, but so many people did one that the teacher in charge ran out of the label things. Hopefully I'll do one next year.

    you know reading something like that and then thinking about why i constantly feel depressed and can't get out of it makes me feel sick with guilt.

    I just saw the Movie Beyound Borders lastnight with Angelina Jolie and int he movie she travels to Africa and Cambodia and filming with people who's only goal is to survive another day, that's kinda sad.

    I'd much rather be doing something personal like preparing a shoebox full of pressies for a kid then simply hand over cash to someone with a moneybox!!

    Be nice if there was a way to know where your pressie ended up.

    As I've said before, there will always be people worse off than you (whoever "you" is), but it doesn't mean your problems are unimportant. You should feel a bit better because of this, but not guilty.
