Paying-it-Forward Christmas Style :)

If you arrived here via my homepage, you may be wondering about the red and green Company for Christmas badge in the sidebar:

Company for Christmas: support for the alone and isolated on Christmas Day

On December 25, the Company for Christmas blog goes “live” for anyone alone and looking for a little holiday cheer.  Let’s face it: not everyone has a huge family dinner to attend, or hoards of people dropping by with gifts the way TV commercials might have us believe! The stark reality is this: many people spend the day in isolation, not depressed exactly, but reluctant to reach out to friends they perceive as busy and happy with their own relatives and lives. No one likes to intrude, so this is where C4C comes in! 🙂

If you’d like someone to talk to, or if you’re a good listener, please swing by the Company for Christmas blog. The chat room will be open throughout Christmas Day, and the conversation is bound to be lively and interesting!  Best of all, it requires no money AND you may find a new blog or two to follow.  Win-win!

To read more about this first-time-ever online effort click here.

In keeping with the spirit of the season,  I’ll close with a picture I took last week at the Gifford Community and Student Garden.

For the first few years of life, Slash Pine (aka Pinus Elliotti) seedlings have a grass-like appearance. During this stage they develop extensive root systems and collars and grow rapidly. This one was approximately 18″ tall..

Until next time…..

  1. Great idea. It’s sounds to be a helpful and positive website. Hopefully, it’ll make a lot of folks holiday much more brighter and happy. 🙂
    Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!

    • isn’t it the best idea? Although I won’t be spending the day alone, it IS different for me this year: neither of my boys can make it down due to starting new jobs right after Thanksgiving (aka NO vacation time for travel.) I’m certain many people are seperated from those they’d like to see—-It’s nice to think someone can surf to C4C and chat with others in similar circumstances. 🙂
