[SDCPJ] uh oh! Weary Wednesday?

Dear friends of peace, justice, and sustainability,

Certainly you know of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, probably even ‎Small Business Saturday and GivingTuesday‬, yes? Like me, you probably saw quite a number of email or social media requests to donate to your favorite nonprofit yesterday. All that following a day where we're supposed to be grateful for what we have... Phew! That's why some refer to today as Weary Wednesday. "They" won't stop prying at your pocketbooks.

Well... hopefully, your wallets aren't weary, let alone your spirits. I bet you are a grateful person, involved in social justice (you are on this list, after all!). Perhaps you celebrated "Black Out Friday" instead of Black Friday. Maybe you didn't shop online while at work on Monday. Possibly you did give to a nonprofit yesterday.

If you didn't, or even if you did one/any of those (yes, here's the pitch)... 

Consider the following actions that are simple, but do really count to help make the world better:

(1) Come to the Annual "Peace on Earth Holiday Bazaar"
     this Saturday, Dec 5th from 10 am - 2pm
     at Mid City Gym, 43rd and Landis, 92105.

There will be:
... 26 small local not-for-profit groups to learn about and support.
... Entertainment by a high school quartet, peace on earth carolers, circus performers, and guitar students
... Delicious food, tasty treats, and hot drinks available from some of the groups
... and even some cute rescue animals are visiting!
Details and flyers: www.PeaceBazaar.net 
Updates/photos from groups: www.facebook.com/peacebazaar

(2) Make #GivingTuesday any day (just like Earth Day is everyday!)...

And with that, in your own name or that of friends and family, please consider helping build peace and justice here in 2016 by supporting the Peace Resource Center of San Diego!  The PRC just celebrated its 35th anniversary, and is committed to continuing to work, better than ever, locally and beyond. What world might we (all together) be living in after another 35 years?  What kind of world should children and future generations look forward to? Help us continue our work --WITH YOU-- to build a better world, one where there is peace with justice through nonviolent means.  

Also, if you do shop online at Amazon, now or at any time, consider choosing the Peace Resource Center of San Diego as your donation beneficiary. It's just 1% per purchase, but think "Pennies for Peace" to help us continue the work... https://smile.amazon.com/ch/95-3594247

As a new Board member, I know that renewed enthusiasm and energy to do what we must is resident at the PRC! And I have now donated to PRC on behalf of loved ones.
