And Goodwill

Watch these, even if you've seen them before, before you scroll down to the end.

1. The "Twist and Shout" scene from Ferris Bueller's Day Off

2. "The World Is Just Awesome" from the Discovery Channel

3. "Where the Hell is Matt", 2006 and 2008

Now that you've remembered that the world is wide and wonderful, and you love everybody in it, here are two ways you can make it even better.

Knitters Without Borders

The Yarn Harlot is making another big push for her pet project, Knitters Without Borders, which raises money for Doctors Without Borders. She explains it much more eloquently than I do, so go ahead and click that logo to find out more.

Heifer International

Heifer is my pet charity, the one I give to every year. If you're not familiar with Heifer already, what they do is give families in need a source of food--like cows, llamas, a flock of geese--requiring only that the family then pass on the gift by giving their animals' offspring to another family in need.

I've donated in someone else's honor a couple of times as part of their Christmas gift, and it never fails to bring a smile. Even my then-in-high-school little brother thought giving someone a flock of chicks was a pretty neat idea.

So go on! Spread the love!
