Things have been pretty hectic the last couple of weeks, with no signs of slowing down until after Christmas. So posting here will be quite sporadic.
Before I (sort of) disappear to the holiday rush, I wanted to remind readers and friends that the best business gifts are donations to charity. So when you sit down to send holiday gifts to your clients and employees, instead of a gift basket or a bottle of wine, consider making a donation. If you know the person well enough, it is nice if the charity is important to them, but that isn’t absolutely critical.
Here are the organizations that I am supporting this holiday season in honor of my clients:
- The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation;
- The Wounded Warrior Project, a group that assists disabled veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan;
- Take the Lead, a group that provides services and support for people in the sport of dogs suffering from life-threatening or terminal illnesses.
Have a great holiday season, whatever traditions you celebrate, and don’t forget to drop a few bucks in the Salvation Army kettle.
