As my long-time clients know, I stopped giving holiday gifts a few years ago. Instead I donate to two or three causes. Recession notwithstanding, this year is no different. The amounts may be slightly less, but the spirit isn’t.
This year, I am supporting Take the Lead, an organization that provides services and support for people in the sport of purebred dogs during times of life-threatening or terminal illness, and School Year Abroad, the year-abroad program that I participated in during my junior year of high school.
Best wishes to everyone for a safe and happy holiday season.
