You’ve probably noticed the pretty new badge on the side of my page. And oh– hey look, there’s Marilyn with it, too! In fact, just to give it some attention– since we’re starting a little late this year on getting the word out– I’ve taken down most of my side-blog sparkle.
It’s C4C– Company for Christmas!
Company for Christmas is a volunteer-fueled mission, created by fabulous blogger RuleofStupid. It is a virtual place for people who, quite simply, don’t have any company on Christmas, and would benefit from a little non-religiously-affiliated, non-counseling-oriented, conversation.
I’ll be volunteering, so if you want to spend some of your Christmas day chatting with me and the hubs– come on over. Schedules will be posted, too, so you’ll know when to find us.
You can help, too.
- Spread the word, so that no member of our wonderful blogging family spends Christmas alone.
- Volunteer! If you have a little bit of time on Christmas day– volunteer so we can try to fill the day with voices and companionship. You don’t even have to commit to a post. Just stop by, say hi, and keep the conversation going with a comment or two. I mean, we’ll be having a pretty fabulous party, since both Dave and I will be hanging out there, but I understand if all you can spare is a word or two.
- Visit RuleofStupid’s blog and give him kudos for a kind idea. He’d be the first to tell you that you don’t have to do that, and I’ll be the first to tell you that you should.
Please visit the official blog for more information: http://companyforchristmas.wordpress.com/
To encourage promotion of this cause, I will be taking the giveaway advice posted by WordPress gurus and offering prizes (that you may or may not actually want).
- If you put the badge with link on your site, blog, or re-blog, about C4C, I’ll make a little something weird and special for you. It will be posted on my blog, and linked to yours, on Christmas Day.
Be sure to actually tell me you did one of these things, so I know to whom I should give these … erm… wonderful… prizes.
You should also be aware that I’m not above nagging when I’m 100% behind a cause! Prepare to hear about this again.
And– Merry Christmas!
