Idea of the Week – December 18

Posted on: December 18, 2007

Hey Everybody,

The holiday cheer is just wonderful, isn’t it? I am completely in the spirit of cheer and giving! I bet everyone’s effort to make donations to those in need is really making the spirit fly!

Are you ready for the LAST idea of the week for the year of 2007? I can’t believe the year is nearly over! Here it is: have a gift-exchange party with your friends before vacation. Put all of your names in a hat, have each friend pick a name, and get a present for that person. Instead of buying a present, why not make one? Gifts from the heart are always the best ones. Then, ask each friend to bring a set amount of money (like $5-10, maybe) that you would have used to buy a gift. With that money, you can all go out and buy a gift together to give to a charity of your choice.

I wish you all a wonderful, fun, and SAFE holiday break!

That’s all for now,


Each week Girl Talk brings you the Idea of the Week filled with fun and creative alternatives to drinking alcohol. It may seem that all your friends are spending their time partying and you’re probably thinking your only option is to join in. But research shows: nearly 75% of girls drink alcohol “to fit in.” That means many girls are making bad (and illegal!) choices because they feel like they need to. Do you want to suffer the negative consequences that come with underage drinking? Here’s my advice: be the cool girl who finds something else to do instead – you’ll probably find that other girls around you will be thankful and relieved to have something fun and safe to do!
