My charitable work for the holidays...

~Thursday~  Each year the organization I work in, the Office of Information Technology at NC State University, sponsors two or three organizations as part of its Holiday Giving Project.

As I did back in 2009, I put forth Love Wins Ministries as one of those organizations for this year's project, and it was accepted. Over the course of December, my colleagues have been making donations to this project, and this morning, my boss and I brought the fruits of that labor of love down to the Love Wins house in downtown Raleigh.
