It's not all just about egg nog and mistletoe this time of year. Five Points members Moshe Amundson and Josh Lewis are getting into the holiday spirit by helping kids...and they've made it easy for you to help, too:

This on-going project of Moshe's is a program that enriches the lives of impoverished youth overseas by providing education, resources, and inspiration. They donate much needed materials and technology including computers, books, and school supplies for a more successful education; provide medical and hygiene supplies and teach the importance of living a healthy lifestyle; and provide free creative arts workshops including breakdancing, hip-hop and poetry to expand the appreciation and knowledge of the arts. The only thing you have to do to help is donate here.

Josh is supporting 88 Bikes. Bikes are environmentally friendly, practical, useful, and they can help a kid get to school or get small jobs. More importantly, bikes are fun, and provide a sense of independence and confidence. 88bikes provides bikes for kids to give them joy, and to improve their lives. The program operates primarily in Vietnam, Nepal, India and Ghana, focusing on children who have been rescued from slavery or servitude. Sound like something you would like to support? Go here and give.

Are you a Five Points member with a great cause? Know of one? Let us know and we'll help spread the word!
