Joy to the World!

Over the weekend I watched a movie on the ABC Family channel that seemed to be another updated version of the movie "A Christmas Carol." Although the main character is a young successful woman in the entertainment industry versus the one we all know, Ebenezer Scrooge, the message was the same. Every holiday season starting with Thanksgiving seems to be all hustle and bustle. Gratitude is always brighter at this time of year a.k.a. the "spirit of the season." Have you stopped to take it all in and remember the reasons of the season? We challenge ourselves and you to make everyday a gratitude day - pay it forward in anyway you can. Not only monetarily; you can give the give of time, the gift of a smile, the gift of a thank you, the gift of a referral, the gift of a compliment, or many more.

At the end of each year the team at Escoe Bliss reflects on our accomplishments and those that include the extended Escoe Bliss family (our subcontractors and consultants). The year of 2010 has been a year of recovery for most individuals, small and large businesses, and the nation in general. We feel blessed to have another year of business (celebrating 17 years in 2011) and a network of clients, consultants, vendors and partners that bring so much joy to all of us. For this, we say THANK YOU!!

If you can and would like to contribute your time or make a donation for the holiday season (and throughout the new year,) here are a list of some of our favorite local charities & non-profits that could use your support.

- Working Wardrobes
- Families Forward
- Pediatric Cancer Research Foundation
- The Let it Be Foundation
- Susan G. Komen for the Cure
- Alzheimer's Association

Please feel free to post comments with your charity of choice to share with others and what the holidays mean to you!

Wishing you Happy Holidays and may they bring you much joy!
