I know…what is wrong with me? It is still four weeks until Christmas Day and yet today, I feel ready to celebrate.
There are a number of factors, one being that our station PULSE FM has gone all Christmas music beginning today and running through December 25th (shameless plug). But coming in this morning at 5:10 AM and hearing the sleigh bells ringin’ and jing jing jinglin’ put a smile on my face.
Then there was a trip to the Surrey Food Bank on Saturday. Our station was named by the Surrey Food Bank as an ‘Over and Above’ Media Contributor to the cause and we could not be more humbled by the acknowledgement.
14000 people need the food bank every month, and to be seen as a station that contributes to any kind of success that this fine organization has in taking on this task monthly, it is truly heart warming.
Being in this business, I have had the fortune of being involved in Christmas Pledge Days, Bikes for Kids, Toy Mountain and other Christmas initiatives, and each time I get to be a part of this, it makes me thankful for what we have and more importantly, what others need.
All I want for Christmas now is to know that as many people as possible have a warm meal, a warm coat and the comfort of a warm home.
I already have that, the goal now is to pass it on.
