This year, rather than give the traditional Christmas "junk" to clients (mugs, dinners, popcorn, whatever) it seemed more fitting to the season and to the times to give something to charity in their name. So, this year, Jholdas contributed to International Micro Enterprise Development (www.imed-online.org). IMED works among the poorest of the poor around the world in some very hard to get to places. Their volunteer network teaches and funds micro-businesses for the unemployed where the unemployment rates are 20-50% (and sometimes even higher)! We encourage all of you to consider a year end gift to a charity or ministry. It's a better use of money and it makes a real difference long after the cheeseballs are molded and thrown away. Merry Christmas!
