Shop with a Jock

Yesterday I had the privilege of attending an event hosted by Junior Seau, a former San Diego Charger, that allows kids from all over San Diego to come and shop with an athlete for Christmas. Each child is paired up with a jock, and after a great meal and a bit of dancing, we head into the store to help the kids shop for their friends and family with a $100 gift card. It's an amazing opportunity to help give back to the community by sharing our time and energy with these kids and it's so awesome to see them excited over the opportunity to spend money on those they love and pick out gifts they have thought long and hard about. It reminds all of us that the holidays are supposed to be way more about giving than receiving. Here are a few photos from the event...

-Junior referring the dance off to see who would win a new bike. fyi...these kids don't dance like they used to!




-Myself, Grace, and Jenny -- aka "the jocks"

Ms. Glenn,
Ever wonder about what captures people’s interests? You do some blog on your ‘woes of dating’, get 30 Comments. You do something beautiful and self-sacrificing, zip.
Guess we don’t have to think too hard about why some entity like Paris Hilton attracts attention, huh?
