We Are the World - Wednesday

Good afternoon happy people! It's Wednesday again, which means it's time to focus on the positive!  I figure I can shelf my generally Scrooge-like demeanor for one afternoon, and tell you about some do-gooder out there who's making a difference.
I've been trying to convince Boss-Man Jr. to go to the Children's Museum of the Upstate Chocolate Soiree with me next month.  We share a client in the same area, so I was hoping we could parlay the Soiree (rhyme!) into some productive meetings.  I dragged Boss-Man Jr. to the Children's Museum's Opening Gala last summer, and we had a lot of fun.  This event should be basically the same, only with TONS of chocolate.  What could be better??

Since I have the Museum (and dark chocolate fondue) on the brain, I thought it'd be a great idea to feature it in this week's installment of We Are the World (the Museum, not fondue).  Hooray!
The Children's Museum of the Upstate is an ADORABLE little den of learning in Greenville, SC. It's mission is to grow young scholars by making them excited to actually know stuff.  It's located in an old library, and is 79,000 sq ft of bright colors, music, happy kids, and super-cool exhibits (I know they're super cool because I got to play on all of them before the Museum even opened.  Color me important!) 

The Children's Museum earned a spot on WATWW because it's a non-profit, and it subsidizes a huge portion of its own operating costs so that all kids can afford to go.  So, it's a do-gooder in its own right.  It raises the extra money it needs through a capital fund and special events, like the Soiree, so that it can keep ticket prices as low as possible.  And, the people who run it are awesome. 

Check out the Museum's website to learn more: http://www.tcmgreenvillesc.org/about_us.php

If you have kids and live in this area (NC, SC, GA) - make the 2 hour trip to Greenville.  It's worth it.  Your kids will LOVE it, and you'll be supporting a worthwhile cause with a great mission. 

Peace out.

What the Hell, SS? Is it me? I can't read vertically and there is a mile of vertical here. Maybe it is my computer. The positive side is that until faced with the choice of reading vertically or whining about it, I never knew I couldn't do it. And now I do. Maybe they make special glasses for that. BTW, who is Boss Man, Jr.? Is he really your boss, or is there office other stuff involved?

I think it's you, Chicken. You may want to have that checked out...

Boss-Man Jr. IS my boss. So is Boss-Man Sr. But, Boss-Man Sr. is also Boss-Man Jr.'s boss. Hence the Jr./Sr. title distinctions. I am a peon. I am nobody's boss. There is no "other stuff" with either of them, by any means. But, Boss-Man Jr. is my age and we get along well, so we will do social client/networking things like grand opening galas and such.
