Taking Positive Action

This is not a page for politics. However, I feel a tremendous need to take positive action today. There are some things I've been meaning to do and I may have just had the kick in the pants I needed to get moving.

First of all, I've long wanted to expand the charitable component of what we do. Last year we raised money for AIDS Walk New York by creating cocktails for our sponsors. If you sponsored us for $100 or more you got to choose the theme of one of our episodes. I definitely anticipate doing that again next year, but that's still months off. Right now it's time to donate to another of our pet charities, Toys For Tots. If you're interested, here's the link. I'm also looking into charities that seek to end hunger, particularly in children. I'm still researching how this could work in terms of getting the show involved, but just writing about it here is a step.

I'm also working on ways to grow our audience. There is a world out there that really needs a drink right now and I'm determined to give it to them.

Finally, I'm planning to sign up for self-defense classes. Grab my you-know-what at your peril. I just hope Paul is there with the camera when someone tries.
