46 reasons to make Christmas last.
It's 46 for me
What's all this about 46? Well, last Friday I turned 46. So knowing that this was coming, I started this campaign of extending Christmas and thinking of ways to contribute to neighbors, local communities and global causes on November 10...46 days before Christmas.
11 down, 35 to go
Well, I skipped two days so will have to double up some. I've suggested and highlighted 11 ways to contribute. Did you catch them all?

- Benefit for Nickelsville.
- Shopping smart for local food banks.
- Call to make someone's day.
- Become a daily do gooder.
- Give a Thanksgiving dinner.
- Provide a meal and shelter for a pet.
- Notice people around you and act.
- Donate air miles to charity.
- Thank a fire fighter.
- Invest in someone today.
