I'll be playing Naughty Santa on Sunday the 4th at the Special Delivery Holiday Social in Mission Hills to benefit Special Delivery - The holidays are particularly hard for service-oriented charities, and they need an extra "push" to get them over the line. This is a very worthy charity, and I don't mind that this event will prevent me from attending Cigars & Boots at the Redwing, just this once. They're incredibly good people - saints among us.
Check out these pictures, showing good-hearted volunteers making life easier for people who have a life-threatening illness and/or needing emergency nutrition We are living in cynical, harsh times, and these people are pushing hard in the other direction, being kind and good because it is the right thing to do.
One hopes that Special Delivery can set the tone for the NEXT phase in our society's history.
