Other Communities Hold Old Newsboy Days for Charity
Delivering papers used to be one of those things young men did to 'build character', learn business skills and earn money. It was also a source of labor for the newspaper industry. The notion of getting up in the wee hours of the morning to venture out and do hard work is a little out of date, so adults deliver them nowadays.
Maybe someday, there will be an Old Bloggers Day, but we are likely too self absorbed to do such a thing.
Another Salvation Army fundraiser I would think is having trouble is the kettle drive. People don't have cash on them as much and credit card accepting kettles have not his NNY yet.
