In the US, we're celebrating Thanksgiving today, ostensibly a holiday when we take stock of our blessings and give thanks for them. These days, Thanksgiving is mostly a foodie bacchanal and football orgy. Instead of the usual ironic, silly, and interesting urls Stereophilia usually offers, I'm posting links to some of the most worthwhile causes I know. If you feel thankful, share a little of your good fortune with these folks.

When I was going to carpentry school learning that I wasn't a good carpenter, my teacher put us to work at HFH, saying that nothing taught you faster than doing a job for somebody who needed you to do it right. He was correct—and it felt good, too.

My first electronics project was the crystal radio I constructed to earn my Webelos badge in the Scouts. It was like magic—something I made pulled radio waves out of the air

Well I'm not braggin' babe so don't put me down
But I've got the most eco-friendly set of wheels in town
When something comes up to me, he don't even try
Cause if I had a set of wings man, I know she could fly
She's my little deuce coupe
You don't know what I got.
