It’s coming folks… THE holidays… with all their glorious prep and planning. Soon enough I’ll jump with both feet into that but I’m not quite ready yet. I thought I might focus on some unofficial special days that may be a little lighter and require less prep but who knows—Brandied Fruit Day could take some special preparation.
Below you’ll find a list from Holidayinsights.com with a host of VERY special days coming up.
I can’t decide if my favorite is Babbling Day or Increase Your Psychic Powers Day. I’m really looking forward to picking out my outfits on Wear Something Gaudy Day and Punk for A Day Day. I’m afraid I’ll be passing on National Bologna Day but certainly won’t look down upon those who choose to celebrate it. There’s something for everyone in October, even your Mother-In-Law.
Here at Housewarming, we are passionate about giving back to our community and really do appreciate Make a Difference Day. We’ve been making a difference this month by offering free design services to the Delridge Neighborhood Development Association at the Youngstown Cultural Arts Center in West Seattle. www.DNDA.org
The mission of the Delridge Neighborhood Development Association is to “Activate Growth in the Delridge corridor by providing vital resources for our neighbors. These resources include access to affordable housing, green space, healthy food, education and arts & culture”.
We’re helping the executive director of the DNDA to redesign his office so that he can focus on his important work in the community. A well-designed, functional and beautiful space makes all the difference when your job is all about making a difference. Stay tuned for a special blog post about the project including before and after photos.
If you know of a non-profit that’s making a difference in the Seattle area and needs help setting up or rethinking their office or work space, send us an email at email@example.com. We’d like to help others make a difference in our community.
