Charlie Brown Christmas Dance

They’re so excited and they just can’t hide it because they’re putting on a play for their community.

It’s that time of year and everyone is rushing around like busy little bees preparing for the holidays. Decorating, baking, shopping and hosting parties are all super fun, but don’t forget that you can lend your time and wonderful talents (whatever they may be) to make a difference with people and organizations in your community.

I may or may not have been in love with Gilbert Blythe….

This past Saturday, Team Guttersmiths had the privilege of volunteering for Wisconsin Public Television. It’s something we hadn’t done before and we had a blast! We were in the phone bank taking pledges during the live broadcast of their membership drive. Now, I freely admit that I am a huge nerd and I love PBS. I grew up enjoying WPT and have fond memories of watching the aforementioned membership drives with my mom and sisters. I’m not ashamed to say that we all got ridiculously excited when it came time for the airing of Anne of Green Gables. Even as a child, I didn’t mind the interruptions for the pledge breaks because I recognized the importance of what they were doing. Plus, the on air talent volunteers were just so darn entertaining. (And they are just as amusing in person. Big shout out to Linda for making us omelettes!) It was so encouraging to see how dedicated all the volunteers are to WPT and how much fun they have with the time they spend there. Not just that, but by putting their talent and passion to work they play a big part in keeping WPT well-funded so that we can all enjoy their delightful programs commercial free! How lame would it be to have commercial breaks for Downton Abbey or Doctor Who? So lame.

So this Christmas season, I encourage you to go out make a difference. The opportunities are endless. Ring bells for the Salvation Army, donate to Toys for Tots or Angel Tree, donate to a food pantry or give some time to an animal shelter or retirement home (and make some new friends in the process!). No effort is too small. Whatever it is, it’ll be like giving a gift to yourself because it will make you feel all warm and fuzzy for being so awesome. So just go do something, eh? I promise you won’t regret it.

it's a wonderful life

George Bailey helped everyone and then everyone helped George Bailey. And just look how happy he is!

I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about. I’m very happy I came across this during my hunt for something concerning this.
