Congrats to President Barack Obama! Whatever your political affiliation, the 2012 election was an exciting campaign with as many twists and turns as a juicy reality show. The campaign emphasized the importance of being informed and educated about campaign issues and the political process. Let's hope our elected officials can find a way to work together??!!

The month of November is a reminder of why we should be thankful. As we sit in our warm homes with big bellies on Thanksgiving Day, we should be thankful for the simple things like food, water and shelter. It is so easy to complain about things we don't have (a new iPad or a body like Beyonce), unexpected events like Hurricane Sandy have a way of helping us focus on what's really important like health, friends and family. 


The East and Midwest weathered the storm of Hurricane Sandy. Weeks after the devastating storm, many people are still in need of help. The Red Cross is a great way to give to those who have been affected. You can donate via the internet or text the words 'Red Cross' from your cell phone to 90999 for a $10 donation. If you are not able to give money, give your time, food or other items needed. Please make sure you are donating to a reputable organization so the items can go to people who really need help. There are "crazies" who take advantage when people are vulnerable and need help.


During challenging times like this, it's helpful to have entertainment to lift our spirits. The National Double Dutch League's Holiday Classic at the Apollo Theater is one of those events. Grab your family or a group of friends and experience a great double dutch event. Read more about this event, in our blog below.


Enjoy the weekend!
