Community Spotlight: Giving
I've never been one to stretch out holidays, with the possible exception of a forgotten decorative candle tucked behind a lamp. I've already taken exception to a few conversations and TV ads that presume that holiday gift shopping should have begun by now. But that doesn't mean that Goodjers aren't already in the giving spirit.
I know a handful of Goodjers already participated in Extra Life earlier this month. Still others are gearing up for Movember next month. Momgamer reports that she's "up to her overloaded safeties" in Child's Play activities, and McChuck and I are about ready for our own Chicago Loot Drop's second annual fundraiser to benefit Child's Play, this time featuring minibosses on top of the Rock Band 3 competition.
And that's just the beginning. GWJ is full of wonderfully charitable people, and I can't get hear enough about it. It warms me up when the wind blows cold.
I'm awfully proud of the community we have here at GWJ treats each other, but the fact that we also go out of our way to help others really overclocks my love for you folks. So I'm opening the floor here today to spread the love. Are you active in a charity, or do you know someone on GWJ who is? Spread the word and brag about your friends!
