One of the BEST parts of writing this blog is the amazing community of Pittsburghers that have stepped up to support so many great causes. The CHS Holiday Gift Project is one of many incredible holiday fundraisers happening around town.
IheartPGH Readers Make a Difference
Last year, the readers of IheartPGH raised over $2500 to help Pittsburgh non-profits.
- $1395 for Light of Light Minisitries to provide underwear for the homeless shelter
- $1360 online and more at the event for CHS (Community Human Services) Holiday Fundraiser
This year, the readers of IheartPGH contributed time, money (over $5000), tweets, Facebook posts and great ideas to make it possible for me to participate in the Millennial Trains Project. I am personally incredibly grateful for the amazing generosity of Pittsburghers.
The CHS Holiday Gift Project and The (ChristMas Cookie Table)
Now that Thanksgiving is behind us, it is full-steam ahead into the holiday season. I hope you will join me in supporting CHS again this holiday season. The monies raised from this annual event allow CHS to provide small holiday gifts and activities for the Pittsburghers that they serve. Last year – we exceed the fundraising goal and CHS was able to provide gift for over 400 people. Continue reading

I have recently had the opportunity to meet several new women entrepreneurs in Pittsburgh who are working on building some exciting companies.
I am looking for other women bloggers in Pittsburgh who would be interested in meeting to network and meet some of these entrepreneurs. If this first event goes well, we are looking at making this a monthly event.
I am organizing an event next Monday or Tuesday before Thanksgiving. If you a women, you have a blog and you would like to attend – click here to let us know what date and time works best for you. (We’ll try to find a time that works for most people and we can plan a second event if needed.)
The folks at c-leveled, a consulting firm that works with small businesses and startups, has offered to host this meeting at their offices in Bloomfield. (Full disclosure – I work part-time for c-leveled).
Just in time for the family fun of the holidays! Cold Turkey is a film about families and Thanksgiving. With an all star cast, including Peter Bogdanovich and Cheryl Hines, this looks like a promising film.
You can watch Cold Turkey online at Amazon and Google Play. If you would like to catch this film on the big screen, Cold Turkey will be showing at The Hollywood Theater in Dormont this Thursday, November 21, 2013 at 7:30pm. Tickets are available online via Gathr.
A friend of mine sent me the preview to this film last week and I thought this was worth sharing. Here is your opportunity to check out a Thanksgiving film a week before Turkey day and an excuse to visit one of Pittsburgh’s independent movie theaters. (Check out the IheartPGH guide to independent movie theaters in Pittsburgh here).
Looking for more holiday movies on the big screen? The Hollywood Theater in Dormont will be screening Planes, Trains and Automobiles and It’s a Wonderful Life this weekend – check out the November schedule here.
