Christmas Spirit is one of those unquantifiables. We want that feeling of warmth, community, generosity, but the months turn cold, the bustle doesn’t relent, and the Duane Reade radio station is just BAD. Fortunately, like so many wintry things, the spirit is contagious. New York might have lost power, but we, the eighth year of The Christmas Club, generated Christmas Spirit like ConEd’s 14th Street command center gone supernova.You can’t put a dollar sign in front of that, but you might be interested to know we’ve donated more than $2000 to City Harvest this
year! It costs City Harvest 27¢ to deliver a pound of food. With our donation alone they will put more than 7,400 pounds of food into the hands of the hungry.
Really can’t go overboard about the timeliness of all this giving. This is still a recession, and the destruction wrought by Hurricane Sandy put many over the edge. Our charity, City Harvest, is one of the biggest and best local resources of its kind, rescuing and donating food to hungry New Yorkers. Just since Sandy they’ve collected 6.6 MILLION pounds of food, dispensing it through continued hurricane relief operations, soup kitchens and shelters.
More good news: if you forgot, our Christmas Club fundraiser on Razoo doesn’t end until New Year’s. You’ve got some Obamacare tax conspiracy you wanna dodge, right? Feed the world! Let them know it’s Christmas time!
Plus, should you get bored of Christmas with the Rat Pack the third time through, we’re rounding out the 2012 Christmas Club EP by my friends and yours, The Good Tidings. “Jingle Bells” features F.O. the Canadian B. Li Cornfeld and my brother “the talented Snyder” John, with a ca-meow appearance by the melodic miniature miss Mae, and a weird sign-off by my Dad, ‘ere he drove out of sight.
Bit of trivia: Did you know “Jingle Bells” originally entered the Billboard Hot 100 in 1857 as a Thanksgiving song called “One Horse Open Sleigh”? And that the word “jingle” appears as an buy cheap cialis online imperative verb since sleighs used to get into accidents on account of being too quiet? Can you believe there used to be songs for Thanksgiving? HAHAHAHAHAHA
Freely stream and download the rest of this year’s EP including the humorous, harmonious vocalizations of Ian Crowther, Carrie Cheek, Jason Schreiber and some zoo animals we keep locked up at Lost Planet NY.
Alright. I love you. I mean it. Get back to your Christmas feeling great about yourselves.
