For those unfamiliar with this holiday tradition, Toys for Joys has become a significant force for good, collecting toy donations for children in our community most in need. The team behind this annual toy drive host the best fundraiser of the season – devoid of rubber chicken dinners and long speeches. The evening is filled with great music, delicious cocktails from Tito’s Vodka and a casual and welcoming atmosphere to meet and mingle with friends and new acquaintances.

Enjoy this year’s Christmas-themed Men in kilts post. Although there is no stamp on this, I bet these photos came from the Kilted Brothers ad campaign.

Since today is Christmas Eve, and tomorrow is Christmas Day and many places are closed of the holiday, I”m going to refrain from posting my usual “What’s Happening This Week” and leave you with this photo taken by my friend Izzy Berdan from a few years back to help put you in the holiday spirit.
Merry Christmas from me to you and I’ll share an update on what’s happening this weekend on Thursday afternoon.
Still not feeling the holiday vibe? Perhaps this coy photo of Simon Dunn, showing us all how to make the most of mistletoe will help.

The organizers of Toys for Joys, Inc. (T4J), recently hosted their 10th Anniversary Gala this month and I’m pleased to share that it was an amazing success; toys and gifts from the event are being sent to children and teens throughout Massachusetts. This week T4J has taken on a new challenge and they need your help to spread the word. Please read and share this post or the link included below with as many people as you know, because time is of the essence.T4J is working to collect additional donations for 5,000 migrant children (many of whom) have been separated from their families and are in the equivalent of detention centers. T4J has a lofty goal of raising $50,000 in the next week to help brighten what must be a terribly frightening time for these children.
If you would like to help, please visit the T4J website and make a donation today.

I’ve been really good this year so I thought I’d let Santa know that if he can’t give me world peace or irrefutable evidence of collusion, I’d like this under my tree.
