If you're looking for a way to get in the holiday spirit, share an activity or talent, or just want a pre-holiday boost of amazing energy and spirit, contact your local school (extra plug for public school!) for their next concert or holiday event. No doubt they need some extra hands, funds, attendees, organizers, volunteers, and cookie bakers. Sharing your time, as well as talents this time of year is always a great way to give to your community. You never know how much your small gesture (or large) can make an impact on someone else. OK, so I know kids can be loud, messy, sticky, strange, goofy, and many other wild and wonderful things, but you can handle it for an hour, a couple of hours, or maybe you'll even enjoy it! Just pace yourself, and say YES to the opportunities that you enjoy. Schools and our kids in schools NEED every bit of help they can get! The days of the little red one room school houses are gone, but it's still vital that communities come together to support young people and learning. Make it fun, make it a holiday gift to yourself.
