From the Wausau Daily Herald:

_A Merrill [Wisconsin] man with just a couple of years to live has sold his hunting rifles to buy 100 turkeys so that local people in need can celebrate the holidays.

Pat Callahan said that because his kidneys are failing he no longer is able to hunt deer, so he decided to sell off his “toys” to benefit others.

“It will help at least 1,000 people to have a better Thanksgiving and a good Christmas,” said Callahan, who is in his mid-50s.

Callahan said he hopes the news of his donation will inspire others to do what they can to assist people in the community who are going through difficult times._
