Please, if possible, take in mind those people who physically can't get to the stores on Black Friday. I always make sure to take at least one shut-in's list and buy for them so they get the good deals as well. They are usually on a tight budget and the deals help them stretch their holiday dollar even more.
What a FANTASTIC idea, I had not thought about that. I personally don't know anyone that is homebound, but I surely will ask if some of my friends do.
Thanks for reminding all of us.

Also adopt a child off the angel tree if your local stores have one. We not only do that, but we "adopt" a child from our local school that a teacher has submitted their name and get them a coat, hats, gloves, scarf, socks, an outfit and 3 to 4 toys. Last year, I was at the party and happened to hand the gift to my "adopted" child. She didn't know it came from me, we marked it Santa.... It was wonderful! I highly recommend it. Many of us do it at my work and my family loves it.
We have the sharing tree thru the Salvation Army. People who dont have much fill out cards of one thing they would like for X-Mas then at certain stores they have a tree up with cards around it & you can pick a card & get the gift. It is for kids & adults.
