Help bring back season's magic with Christmas Happiness Fund

Published 12:00 am Wednesday, December 2, 2009

Josh Groban sings about the magic of Christmas in his popular song, “Believe.”
The lyrics take us back to a time when we thought anything was possible:
Children sleeping, snow is softly falling
Dreams are calling like bells in the distance
We were dreamers not so long ago
But one by one we all had to grow up
When it seems the magic’s slipped away
We find it all again on Christmas day …
Giving to the Christmas Happiness Fund can help bring back the magic of the season while making the holidays brighter for needy families.
Please bring Christmas Happiness contributions to the Salisbury Post, 131 W. Innes St., between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays or mail them to the Salisbury Post, P.O. Box 4639, Salisbury, N.C. 28145-4639. Make checks payable to the Christmas Happiness Fund and indicate how you wish your donation listed.
