Talk to Santa & Do Something Nice

Although I occasionally get irritated and threaten to delete it, I absolutely love GMAIL.
I love all the amazing things you can do with it to stay organized (more on that in another post).
I love the pretty backgrounds and the simplicity of it, while still being able to do just about anything from Gmail.
Most of all, I love all the new labs and other projects consistently released.
Its always nice to see companies doing cute Christmas things with kids, like Google/ Gmail does.
Last year, people all over the U.S. recieved special phone calls from Santa Claus.
This year, we can all talk to Santa ourselves!
Just call his Google Voice Number: 855-34-SANTA and leave him a message.
Of course, he is very busy and cannot personally return the messages, but he has a special surprise lined up this year.
Also, this year, you can have Santa send a personalized greeting to a loved one!
Just go to sendacallfromsanta.com and fill out the form.
Just be sure to do it just before you would like the message received!
Not only can you send these to children, but also adults. There are plenty of funny responses to fill in.
I will be sending these to my son, husband, inlaws, grandparents, cousins, niece, nephews, brother, mother…
and probably everyone else I can think of!
This is going to be so much fun, and I will probably be in trouble by the time Christmas is over!

Today’s blog is Em Jay & ME: THE KIND-HEARTED-BLOGGER-CAMPAIGN
Here, Jo-Annie encourages bloggers, as a community to band together and stop bullying.
When I think of bullying, I automatically think of elementary school bullies stealing lunch money.
However, in my short stint as a blogger, I have had my eyes opened to the bullying that happens in the blogosphere.
I won’t go into any details, because I choose to be better than that, but I have experienced it here.
I however, believe that the world would be happier and we would all be much more successful if we would work together, rather than against each other. Not only that, but why sink to that level. Other people are just going to look negatively at those who are mean.
Enter the Kind Hearted Blogger Campaign. Jo-Annie encourages us to sign the pledge and place a badge on your site.
She promises to link to whomever places the badge on their site.
I encourage all of my readers to go here and sign the pledge.
Its a simple way to do something good.
After all, It is Christmas!
