Before we talk about politics and everyone goes to the comments and calls everyone of the opposing party cockroaches or demons or idiots, I wanted to get something positive up early this morning.
There’s a fun event happening in Squirrel Hill that will benefit an organization run by Penn State students who raise huge amounts of money each year for pediatric cancer: THON.
AND YOU KNOW HOW I FEEL ABOUT THE SICK KIDS. And you know how I feel about the fact that there are college students who realize the world and its problems are astronomically bigger than their own.
Here are the details!
What: International artisans from developing countries will be selling their hand-crafted wares, perfect for holiday gifts.
Where: Ten Thousand Villages at 5824 Forbes Avenue between Murray and Shady Avenues. Ten Thousand Villages is a mostly volunteer-run non-profit that gives artisans from developing countries a good market to sell their creations.
When: TOMORROW NIGHT, Thursday from 6-8 p.m.!
Why: Because you’ll get a jump start on your holiday shopping, and you’ll be buying things you can’t find in the stores, so they’ll be unique gifts, and because 15% of the proceeds will go to an organization that supports THON.
So go buy some jewelry or candles or clothing or hand bags or coin purses or whatever unique thing you find, and gift it to someone you love knowing you helped out kids with pediatric cancer.
