For years, I have believed in providing turkeys or tofurky for my employees for Thanksgiving. I feel each season that it is important to encourage family togetherness. And we are a family here.
Well the idea has now been extended into the community. We can reach out and give to those who are less fortunate than ourselves.
Sometimes we take it for granted, we goto 1, 2 and sometimes 3 homes for Thanksgiving. We should remember that many people are lucky to even get 1. Some would get none at all. Those shut-ins without an existing family member, or someone unable to provide a dinner this year….
Over the next couple days, I’ll be meeting with the founder of the Muncie Mission, and others dedicated to making this community better. We’re working with this local charity to help provide meals for those who otherwise wouldn’t be able to enjoy a Thanksgiving.
So thats why “Tattoos for Turkeys”… Let’s extend the meaning of family a little further this year.
The idea originally was to provide turkeys for the mission, but our mini fridge won’t hold more than an ice cube tray so… We are going the donating route.
100% of the profits taken in on SATURDAY NOVEMBER 17 (THIS SATURDAY!!) will goto the Muncie Mission. I will take walk-ins and appointments, all day that day, and work as late as YOU allow. If you were looking for a good time to get that tattoo. This is the time. We are also going to be taking in donations all week long with each sale we will be asking for donations towards Tattoos for Turkeys. ALSO Feel free to donate using our Paypal below.
The goal this year is $850.00 Help us to meet this goal by stopping in on Saturday!!
Think about this. Around 400 individuals will be served a meal by volunteers on that day. If you feel you would like to help, because you’re stranded on Thanksgiving, consider donating some time.
I added a donation via PAYPAL to our site. To make it easy for you to do it from home.
Thank You and Happy Holidays.

“When you give a luncheon or dinner, do not invite your friends, your brothers or relatives, or your rich neighbors, if you do, they may invite you back and so you will be repaid. But when you give a banquet, invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind, and you will be blessed.”
