I know ActiveRain is not Twitter. So, throwing out a question like this may, or may not, eleict some suggestions from AR Nation. My problem is that the Holidays really begin next Monday, and I do not have a clue as to what to do for close business associates in the real estate profession with whom I have worked during this extremely difficult year.
In the past, I have give gift certificates to restaurants, scarves for the women and ties for the men, and an array of other items designed to tell people that it has been rewarding working with them throughout the year.
This year I am conssidering making donations to the local food bank in recognition of the person involved. There are a lot of hungry people in Massachusetts whom this would benefit. Maybe I can locate a foreclosure relief organization that could be similarly benefitted.
If any of you have thoughts, please comment. The recession is not nearly over. Some of us have survived these tough times, but just barely. It is a time for reflection, and I would like to do something meaningful.
