November 2014 - Joy Ride

Ah... fall's chill has finally descended upon us, and we are grasping at every opportunity to get
comfy-cozy with the ones we love. Snuggle up on the couch with your favorite magazine and let
us help warm your heart this season.
The holidays are in our sights, and we’ve got some ideas for spreading the giving spirit.
Launchpad4Kids provides sports equipment to kids whose families can’t afford it; even a few
dollars make a big difference. Also, we’re loving the Shasta Regional Community Foundation’s
efforts for Giving Tuesday—we spend a day giving thanks and two days getting deals (Black
Friday and Cyber Monday), so let’s devote a day to giving back. Meanwhile, if you have a spare cell phone tucked into a drawer somewhere, consider donating it to Cell Phones for Soldiers, which provides free communication services to active-duty military members and veterans.
Looking for a little getaway? Check out the Dogwood Diner in Dunsmuir, where a chef known
as “Hurricane Kate” creates California comfort food from locally sourced, sustainable, organic
ingredients. If you need an ocean fix, it’s hard to beat the chance to watch thousands of gray whales as they migrate south, and MacKerricher State Park in Fort Bragg offers a gorgeous vantage point. Get a jump start on your shopping at Enjoy the Store in Redding or Red Bluff. The Redding store has recently undergone a gorgeous expansion, and the Red Bluff store will caffeinate your shopping experience with a stop at their Brew Bar. Either shop is a delightful place to find locally made, unique gifts for just about anyone on your list.
Enjoy giving... we are so thankful for you!
