Gifts from the Heart

On Saturday, December 6, the Cups of Kindness Art Show and Sale will open in Peninsula, Ohio, at the Peninsula Art Academy and Elements Gallery. More than 70 artists have donated artwork for this wonderful event. All proceeds from the sale of these beautiful pieces will be donated to the Akron-Canton Regional Foodbank. According to information provided by the Foodbank, each dollar contributed will help them to provide 7 nutritious meals to individuals and families in need! That is a terrific return for such a small investment!

If you live in northeast Ohio, why not make plans to visit historic and picturesque Peninsula this weekend? It is filled with old-fashioned holiday spirit, and beauty. There are wonderful galleries and shops, restaurants, the Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad, and the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Plus, you can attend the opening of the Cups of Kindness Art Show and Sale, where you can find wonderful one-of-a-kind gifts for family and friends, and help the Foodbank at the same time!

If you can't come to Peninsula, you can still visit the art show. Just click the Cups of Kindness badge to the right of this post! There you can view and purchase (beginning Dec. 8) beautiful artwork, or donate directly to the Foodbank.

There are many opportunities for generosity during this season of giving. You can give joy, hope, smiles, compassion, kindness and nutritious food. When you give from the heart, you receive an abundant measure of good in return. Why not share a "cup of kindness" with someone today!

Thank you!
