While helping my daughter with a school project on a recent Saturday morning, the local news was on t.v. in the background. While I sat at the kitchen table watching her complete the next section of her assignment, I had my ears tuned in to a few “feel good” stories about upcoming events around town.

Sacramento is one of the most philanthropic communities, both in terms of number of non-profits and number of dollars donated annually per capita.  And since we’re coming up on the “giving season” when some 70% of charitable fundraising occurs, plus we’re all exhausted by the nasty political landscape this year, it wasn’t surprising that KCRA was focused on three stories about local organizations on this beautiful fall morning.

The first story highlighted volunteers preparing for the 5th Annual Bike and Toy Giveaway next month put on by the Sacramento Kings Foundation and Buzz Oates Charities. Eight local schools will be the recipients of 4,000 brand new bicycles and 4,000 wrapped toys. This story got my attention because a good friend of mine was one of the gift-wrappers.
