Spreading the Joy

Myriad Media : Adopt-A-Family for Christmas 2013!

It’s that time of year again. When the projects are (hopefully) winding down, you realize there are people at your house who say they are related to you and want to put up decorations with you and eggnog shows up in the fridge. It’s the Christmas season, and it’s time for spreading some joy!

This year was fantastic—both our business and our Myriad family grew rapidly. While it’s been so wonderful for us, it’s easy to see how tough life has been for so many. This year (with the help of Peter Orton and family), we adopted three families: One mother and three children living in a shelter, one family with six children who are going through a difficult time, and three children who have had to relocate to their grandparents with very little notice.

We went shopping for hats, coats, an awesome Hotwheels twister track, shoes, nail polish, gift cards & XBOX 360s… and more. We did our best at wrapping everything up, and then dropped it all off at SAFEChild, a fantastic non-profit helping local families prevent domestic abuse.

We don’t expect to solve any of these family’s serious problems, but maybe we can help share a little bit of the joy that seems to be abundant at the office and in our homes. It was a blast, it felt good, and it was a perfect way to help us all launch into the holiday season.

Best wishes and a Merry Merry Christmas from the Myriad family!
