Archives For Christmas

It’s snowing outside in chilly Detroit for the first time this year as we kick off December and head into the Christmas (& more holidays) season. Another thing that mark’s the coming of Christmas is 24 ways.

24 ways is the advent calendar for web geeks. Each day throughout December we publish a daily dose of web design and development goodness to bring you all a little Christmas cheer.

Check out daily for new tips and techniques.

Christmas remains one of my favorite times of the year. I love the snow, the rich music, time with family, warm cocoa and of course the reason for the season – the gift of Jesus Christ our Saviour to the world.

Amidst all the Christmas cheer lies one element that’s hard for me. Drafting the Christmas wish list. While I am truly thankful for the gifts from others, I find more joy in giving than receiving. I have more than enough toys and as a tech geek find it difficult to relay the specific well researched products I would enjoy under the tree. (For example my Amazon Wish List)

Scott Harrison‘s talk at the Catalyst Conference urged me to give up receiving Christmas gifts for others. My heart aches for those tragically affected by a lack of clean water in Africa.

This Christmas I’m giving up “gifts” for a local cause. My mother-in-law aka Grandma Joy was victim to grand theft auto recently. She is a single mom in need of a reliable vehicle. Grandma Joy continually gives to others, volunteers in the lifechurch Kids ministry and bakes a lot of yummies.

Let’s come together and raise support so a Grandma who gives so much can get around town. So, if you planned on getting me a gift this year please donate to the chip-in below instead. I will also be donating all the proceeds from my affiliate links and advertising from this site.

  3. Purchasing items from Amazon using our affiliate links through out the site. Like this one.
