Charity's Bells Ring For CNN's Crowley

Christmas tradition means a lot for CNN's Candy Crowley, even if it is costing her an arm and a leg. It all started with her father, who died some 20 years ago. Seems he never passed a Salvation Army red bucket without tossing in a quarter or more.

"To this day, I reach for my wallet when I hear those bells ringing," the veteran reporter tells us. "I never pass up a bucket. This is getting expensive, by the way. It's 2007. A quarter won't do," she says. "But I can't stop. It's how I celebrate Christmas with my dad."
