The Office, Giving and Gratitude

The holidays are coming, and I am reminded of the popular television series “The Office. In one episode, Michael Scott dropped an IPod into the Secret Santa pool, landing amongst packs of gum and pocket combs. Next, Creed tossed in an old shirt. The extremes wreaked havoc over the holiday spirit, and I recall that liquid kinds of spirits were used to save the mood (and the show). 

In another holiday moment on the show, Creed swooped down to withdraw, rather than deposit a gift in the office Toys for Tots bin. These shows made us chuckle and illustrated that the holidays can be pressure packed because of expenses and expectations. 

On Saturday’s Secured Retirement Radio show, Joe Lucey and Derek Fautsch framed a few ideas for charitable giving this season through resources that have accumulated and that can share with others. 

It can be said that there is no such thing as a bad gift, and providing one is its’ reward. Charity can also be a way for any of us to say thanks for favors past and present, and a way to pay it forward.  Here’s to putting the thanks back in Thanksgiving!  To listen to the Podcast click here.
