The Christmas story

Nativity scene

It's not the prize that matters.

Last weekend, I passed this house, where Reuben was putting the finishing touches on his nativity display. This display won last year's award for "Best Religious Display," but Reuben said he hadn't even had time to enter the contest this year. He was just glad to get all the lights connected so that it would light up that night.

Thirsty work

Downey High School KIWIN's Thirst Project Fundraiser

At first, I thought there was some sort of protest. But when I got closer, I discovered girls from the Downey High School KIWIN'S club, cheerfully raising money for the Thirst Project. For a dollar a Krispy Kreme donut, I can help them raise money to provide a community with safe drinking water.

The Thirst Project mission is to build a socially-conscious generation of young people who will end the global water crisis. These girls are off to a good start!
