WO: Weekly Obsessions

Can we just talk for a minute about how it is MID-AUGUST? How did that happen? Where am I? How did we get here?

I’m clearly having some issues coping, so here are a few things to take the edge off:

  1. United Way: My company is currently focused on fundraising for the various organizations UW supports. As a team captain, my eyes have really opened to how much even a small donation can do. Check out United Way online to see how you can help.
  2. StePhest Colbchella: This much-hyped story involves MTV networks canceling Daft Punk’s appearance on “The Colbert Report,” and Colbert’s excellent — and now viral — response.
  3. Scoutmob: Ah, technology. This app saves you the trouble of finding new places to try — and saves you money in the meantime! Scour local deals and events in no time at all. Simple.
  4. Get on the Bus: USF football returns soon! We welcome new head coach Willie Taggart with open arms … and he’s brought a whole lot of flavor with this video. An A+ from Sports Illustrated seals the deal.

WO: Weekly Obsessions

This week, my obsessions are simple. Consider it my holiday gift to you.

As most of us are spending time with our families this coming weekend, and our homes are filled with wonder and cheer, consider those whose holiday season will not be so merry or bright.

Donate what you’re able — whether it be clothing, food, time or money — to a cause you can support.

From a young family who just lost their home in a fire to those who’ve not had a home at all, there are plenty of people in need of holiday charity.

Helping those in need is something we should be mindful of year-round, but it often gets lost in our own priorities and needs. Take some time this week to consider those causes which you can support, and commit yourself to lending a hand.
