The gift for Day 2 of Giving Week is the gift of warmth! I purchased hats and gloves for each of the boys in the family my office adopted.The fleece onesie on the right is for the 1-year old boy. Those bears are just so stinking cute, I couldn't resist!
Each summer, my office offers the employees the chance to participate in a fundraiser for the adopt-a-family program. At the end of May, employees can pay $25 to wear shorts and flip flops on Fridays for the rest of the summer. Or you can pay $5 each Friday to be casual. I think this is a fantastic way to allow everyone to participate but to not add more financial stress at the holiday time. Last I heard, we have more than 300 employees in this location, so you can imagine the money we are able to raise.
We get to wrap all of the gifts
Giving Week: Day 1 update
My attempted blood donation is now a badge of honor that I wear proudly on my left elbow. Under that pretty red bandage in Monday's post was a mangled, bruised and swollen mess. I happy to report the swelling is gone, but I have some pretty cool bruises to share!
Note: I apologize if you think this is disgusting, but I just want to show that nothing can keep me from #givingweek!
From Monday night, about 12 hours after donation:
From this evening, about 80 hours after donation:
