Get off Santa’s Naughty List!
In a last minute effort to avoid getting coal for Christmas or having more to repent for on Yom Kippur, our office has decided to chose our favorite charities and spread the word! If you are struggling for a gift idea for somebody special consider making a donation to one of these amazing organizations on their behalf:
