The Gift Of Giving


It’s Christmas Eve and this town is buzzing with last minute store runs, last minute pit stops, and a little bit of last minute shopping. For those who have found themselves in this predicament, weather it’s from a lack of time or not finding just the right gift, we have the perfect thing! This year, we are encouraging you to give a gift that counts. Help our awesome community grow by volunteering your time or helping out a great cause. Here are three charities we stand behind, and always love to help out… News Flash: one of them involves eating ice cream!


1. The Blood and Tissue Center

By donating blood and tissue you are giving someone a gift of life. It’s not a small gesture, and in the seasons of giving it goes a long way. And as a little added bonus, from now until January 15 if you give a pint you get a pint. A pint of ice cream that is! To help keep a steady supply after the holiday season Austin is giving each blood donor one coupon for a FREE pint of Amy’s Ice Cream!


2. Health Alliance for Austin Musicians

There is no better deed than one that helps our awesome city in what it’s known for. HAAM provides access to affordable health care for Austin’s low income, uninsured working musicians, with a focus on prevention and wellness. Helping provide for those who can’t is always a great feeling, and helps keep our music capital jamming all night long!



3. Austin Pets Alive

Still looking for the last gift? What about giving a gift you can both share? This holiday season sign you and a loved one up to walk dogs for the following year. It puts time aside for you two, helps give back to the community, and gives you the chance to play with adorable pups! There really is no loosing when you are giving.


Happy holidays to you all!
