Here's what you saw on Good Day Alabama:
JEH JEH LIVE - WBRC FOX6 is proud to once again partner with the Salvation Army for our annual "Gifts for Kids Angel Tree" program. The program is a way for you to donate Christmas gifts to foster children and children in need this holiday season. Each angel represents a child in need this Christmas. You can pick out the gift and donate it, or you can donate cash to the Salvation Army who will then purchase the items on the Angel Tree list. To adopt an angel, stop by Brookwood Village and pick one out! Your Angel tag will provide you with the Angel's information such as name, age, gender, and size. Return the gifts to the Angel Tree table at Brookwood Village by December 3. Help fill the toy shop for the "forgotten" angels, too. Drop off a toy or coat at any local Chick-fil-A and help The Salvation Army provide Christmas for all of the angels that don't get adopted or returned. You can also make a cash donation to the Salvation Army through the www.OnlineRedKettle.org. The Salvation Army hopes to help 5700 kids in need this year.
WHERE IS THE LOVE - Mike talked with Dr. Misty Smith, LPC, from Mind, Body, & Heart Wellness Clinic about relationship stress busters for the holidays.

BARGAINOMICS - The Bargainomics Lady Judy Bates joined us with a few deals. Judy found a Made in San Francisco brand top at Isabelle's Thrifty Boutique on Montgomery Highway in Hoover for only $4. New, it would have cost around $100. This shop has clothes, shoes, and accessories for the whole family and is located south of the Galleria in the same shopping center as Big Lots. Just because Black Friday and Cyber Monday are over, don't think there aren't still plenty of bargains out there online and in real stores. Many shops are making this Cyber Week, like Dick's Sporting Goods whose sales run through Saturday. One of the best deals Judy saw was on NCAA clothing, like this $59.99 Alabama or Auburn hoodie for $19.98. These deals are in-store only and there are Dick's Sporting Goods stores in Alabaster, Hoover, and Tuscaloosa. Gander Mountain is offering free shipping on all clothing and shoes ordered online. Deals include this $89 ladies' North Face jacket for $59.94. And these $110 men's New Balance 980 sneakers are $59.92. Some sizes may also be available in-store. Lots of good deals are still out there. Just remember: no bargain's a bargain if you can't afford to pay cash. With Thanksgiving behind us, we're starting to see Christmas parades all around the state. This Saturday at 10am, Alabaster will present their Christmas parade. It's a free event and fun for the whole family. And here's a great gift for yourself or as a stocking stuffer. For $2, you can buy a key tag at any Wendy's location and your $2 will help support foster children and get you a free junior size Frosty with any purchase all year long during 2017.

GIVING TO THOSE IN NEED - Almost every child has visions of toys and tech gadgets dancing in their heads this time of year. For parents, teaching the joy of giving not just receiving can be a meaningful part of the holiday season, but sometimes the best gifts don't arrive wrapped in a box with a bow, they come from making a difference in the lives of others with charitable giving. There are unique holiday gift ideas that not only change lives but save lives. Families can make new holiday traditions and memories by exploring and choosing gifts together that help to end extreme poverty by providing life-saving gifts in America and around the world. For example, Sesame Muppet Raya is on a mission to give schoolchildren in Africa the Sesame Street WASH Up! kit that teaches life-saving water, sanitation, and hygiene lessons through books, DVDs, and games featuring Raya and her friend, Elmo available through World Vision's Gift Catalog, but she needs your help. There are many gift categories to explore that will help end extreme poverty in America and around the world, including shelter, clothing, medical care, education and even farm animals. In fact, giving a gift of two chickens will provide a hungry family with nutritious food and can even create an income and so much more.
