Local Fire & Rescue "Thinks Outside the Box"

Kenny George, a volunteer with the Fluvanna County Rescue Squad, was thinking outside the box when he wrote a letter to theChive blog, in the hope of raising some much needed money for this all-volunteer rescue squad.  He wrote: I'm a loyal Chiver contacting you for help. We are one of the last all-volunteer rescue squads in the state of Virginia. We run Thanksgiving and Christmas, give up time with our families, and we're are running out of options. I wonder if there is someone in this country … [Read more...]

I just went online and did some research and there are several posting boards talking about the benefits of drinking Boost while going through chemotherapy.  Because of the extreme weight loss often experienced, … [Read more...]

It is the start of week 2 for the 30-Day Giving Challenge. How are you all doing? Have you come up with a creative way to give? I told you last week how time is my biggest challenge.

It may not seem like much, but as Amee stated, it is all about the … [Read more...]
