Another way we lend a hand in this winter installment of Celebrated Living is by providing a multitude of gift ideas, both fashionable and functional. Think of it as a time-saving way to find that perfect, meaningful present for someone for the holidays, Valentine’s Day, or a must-remember birthday.
Prefer traveling together for some relaxation and downtime rather than exchanging gifts? We’ve got you covered there too. Whether you are craving the caribbean and a warm-weather getaway or a snowy ski destination, it’s all wrapped up here. And remember those AAdvantage miles you could win when you vote in the Platinum list Survey? They could sure help get you and your family where you want to be for that quality time.
While we’re on the theme of time, consider offering a bit of yours to a worthy cause this winter season; I’m betting you’ll be glad you did. Visit aa.com/JoinUs to find some great causes, such as Susan G. Komen for the cure, the United Nations children’s fund (UNICEf), or the USO on behalf of the men and women of the U.S. military.
Another cause worthy of some time is Big Brothers Big Sisters, an important program that has spanned the decades. I have had the good fortune of being a “Big Sister” to Keiaira since she was 7 years old. She’s in 11th grade now, and I am so proud of her wise choices and accomplishments over the years. We’re great pals, and my life has certainly been enriched through knowing her and seeing her excel. learn how you can become a lucky volunteer at bbbs.org. Whatever you and your family choose to do this winter, here’s hoping you have a good time!
