So, your holidays normally go a little something like this; you get stuck listening to Uncle Eddie’s stories of ‘Nam, you feel the pressure to impress your out-of-state cousins, and your Aunt has already promised to make her mystery fruit salad. Take the reigns this year (or at least throw a few of these ideas out there) and start some new holiday traditions! Help your family get out of the same holiday rut, enjoy KC and make some darn good memories!

Your cousins just flew in for Christmas break and they’re dying to check out KC! Head to Tower Tavern for the 10th Annual Ugly Christmas Sweater Party. It’ll remind them of their college days and they’ll get to show off their ugly sweaters for a great cause!

Here’s something that’s sure to entertain your niece, without boring your cousins. The Paul Mesner Puppet Show has become a KC institution. Based in  historic Hyde Park, they boast sold out shows every year. The puppets are elaborate and the shows incorporate something for everyone. We’re sure Jason Segel would approve!

You love Grandma’s cooking, but every meal has become a feast. Why not suggest brunch at The Classic Cookie?! This quaint little spot is perfect for a family holiday brunch. They even greet the table with a basket of mini homemade cookies and muffins! With crowd pleasing classics and specials like Eggnog French Toast, it’s sure to satisfy every appetite. Your whole family will be raving about this little family-run jewel!

Have children that are as crazy about trains as ours are? Visit Union Station December 18-21 for Kansas City Southern’s Holiday Express Train that will brings Santa and elves to Kansas City! Reservations encouraged.

How about The Coterie’s production of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer? The Coterie is a Kansas City original children’s theatre. Highly interactive and engaging. Show your kids that there’s more to performing arts than movies and television!

Looking for something more formal? You can’t go wrong with the Kansas City Ballet’s The Nutcracker, an absolute must-see for ballet newbies and veterans alike.

So you’re not into the glitz and glam of the holidays and want to celebrate a prosperous harvest season in your own way? Don your wind-proof balaclava and head out to some of Kansas City’s best running trails! Get a jump on your winter season trail-runs with the Trail Nerds. Oh, it’s cold out? Harden up and get your butt off the couch.

GivingTuesday2014Blog#GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. Each year we set aside a day to give thanks, and a few days to get deals (or more if we count all the extended Black Friday offers), but all too often, we forget about what’s really important this time of year…Giving back to our community and those in need. Every year on #GivingTuesday, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

It’s simple, really…to participate in #GivingTuesday, just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together and give something more. And here’s the best part…If #GivingTuesday doesn’t work for you, there are 364 other days every year that you can give back and make a difference!

To help you get involved in giving back, we wanted to highlight a few local organizations in Kansas City that are near and dear to our hearts:

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City – Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Kansas City has served more than 20,000 at-risk youth in the Kansas City metropolitan area since 1964. BBBSKC provides children facing adversity with strong, enduring and professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. BBBSKC matches school-aged youth (Littles) from one-parent or other non-traditional homes, with caring, adult volunteers (Bigs). To learn how you can “Be a Big” or other ways you can give to BBBSKC, visit bbbskc.org

***On #GivingTuesday, the BBBSKC Street Team will be at 12th and Walnut from 7:30-8:30 AM, handing out free coffee and information about how you can give your time or money to BBBSKC.***

The Foundation for Shawnee Mission Health – The Foundation relies on support from thousands of donors including individuals, corporations, foundations, organizations, associates and physicians. Each gift makes a difference in improving lives. Opportunities to give include cash gifts, pledges, in-kind goods and services, stocks and bonds and gift planning through an estate or will. To find out how you can give, go to shawneemission.org

Lee Ann Britain Infant Development Center – The Lee Ann Britain Infant Development Center (Britain IDC) is an important outreach program of Shawnee Mission Health, touching the lives of more than 4,000 children with special needs since 1972. Dedicated to serving children with special needs from birth to six years of age, IDC provides a unique program that involves family and friends in the process of therapeutic treatment and education. To volunteer, make a donation, or to learn about other ways you can get involved, click here.

New Horizon Ranch Therapeutic Riding Center – New Horizon Ranch is a therapeutic horseback riding center located in Rantoul, Kansas offering Hippotherapy, Therapeutic Riding, Equine Assisted Learning, Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, and Summer Day Camp programs to individuals of all ages with physical, cognitive, social, emotional and learning disabilities. By giving to NHR, you’re making a difference in the life of a child and ensuring that NHR can continue to change lives! Give today!

Project Walk – Project Walk-Kansas City is dedicated to helping people with spinal cord injuries improve and enrich their lives through the use of state-of-the-art recovery methods, motivation, and education in a supportive environment. To make a donation or to learn more about Project Walk’s Vehicle Donation Program, visit projectwalk-kansascity.org

KC Ability Expo – The Kansas City Ability Expo brings together persons with disabilities and the organizations, the products, resources and programs to assist with leading full and productive lives. This even provides an opportunity for persons with disabilities, their caregivers/families and/or professionals who serve persons with disabilities to gain information about valuable resources and products. For more information on how to become a Sponsor or Exhibitor for the event, or for other ways to get involved, please contact KC Ability Expo on their website: kcabilityexpo.org

***SAVE THE DATE: The 6th Annual KC Ability Expo is August 29, 2015 at the Overland Park Convention Center!***

RiKC – The Rehabilitation Institute of Kansas City (RiKC) helps children and adults with disabilities achieve greater independence at home, school or work, and in the community. A comprehensive team of professionals provides the support, encouragement, knowledge, and skills needed to help individuals succeed in their rehabilitation process. To learn how you can help RiKC build brighter futures for children and adults with disabilities, go to rehabkc.org

Pathway To Hope – Pathway To Hope encourages, educates, and empowers individuals and families whose lives are affected by mental illness. “No one should navigate the uncharted waters of mental illness alone,” and you can help! Get involved and make a difference for individuals & families facing mental illness. For more information on how to become a volunteer or other ways you can donate, visit pathwaytohope.org

Harvesters – Harvesters-The Community Food Network is a regional food bank serving northwestern Missouri and northeastern Kansas.

They also offer educational programs to increase community awareness of hunger and teach about good nutrition. There are many ways that families, organizations, groups and companies can make a difference. Find out how you can take action at harvesters.org

***Join Harvesters to pack BackSnacks for kids as part of the KC Star’s “Star Sundays” this month. Volunteer shifts are available for Sunday, Dec. 14 and Sunday, Dec. 21. Great family activity! More info: http://bit.ly/1vZHKcO***

***Volunteers are needed to assist with holiday distribution to Harvesters’ agencies. Your time can help make the holidays brighter for those in need in our community. Call 816.929.3090 or email volunteer@harvesters.org to sign up.***

Toys for Tots – The Marine Toys for Tots Foundation, while not a local KC organization, is making a difference in the lives of less fortunate children throughout the United States, helping them to experience the joy of Christmas! There are over 16 million American children living at or below the poverty level, who might not have a Christmas without the help of Toys for Tots. You can help provide them with a little bit of Christmas by donating at toysfortots.org or bringing a new, unwrapped toy to the Overland Park Convention Center, or one of the many KC Metro area drop-off locations.

No matter how you choose to give or when you’re able to be generous, we hope you will make the time to give back to the Kansas City community and help those less fortunate! And if you happen to be one of those less fortunate, please don’t be afraid to ask for help. Almost everyone needs a helping hand at some point. We hope you celebrate #GivingTuesday and encourage others to get involved…Perhaps you will be inspired to do more all year long!
