I know it's a tough year for a lot of people with the economy this year. If you've lost your job not-by-choice (as in, not a Quit Your Day Job situation) then post here and let's all tweet some of your great items.
Wouldn't it make you feel so warm and fuzzy to give gifts and support those who need it this year?
Can you all help me come up with a snappy hash tag on Twitter for this?

I'm unemployed, day #42. (I've been keeping track in my blog...)
Not doing too bad, though. I'm pretty young. Haven't had to postpone any of my student loans yet, and I have a loving family/boyfriend who are very supportive if ever I need it. No kids/mortgage to worry about.
So don't worry about me.
But I do think that this is a great idea! Some folks really are hurting this year, so I would love to do what I can to help!
I like the hash tag, and can start promoting on my Twitter, too!

I am unemployed and not by choice.
I was working for a Quad man and had been off and on for 4 year. I had worked 7 months straight without a day off. I was exhausted and having memory problems because of it. I asked if he could find someone for weekends only and he replaced me.Heres the sad part. He is my best guy friend! He calls me when he has an emergency or his new caregiver needs a day off and I cant say no to him. He's a great guy but really selfish.(Most Quads I have worked for are selfish it's all they have control over). COme to find out he had a mold problem in his apt and they moved him out. Since not working for him several of my health problems have gone!! He is including me in his law suit!
