The Fine Art of Representing You

Season’s Givings, revisited

A few years back, before our intrepid Kitty Felde relocated herself to DC, we’d profile volunteer opportunities of various kinds that Angelenos could take advantage of.

We all pretended to think of it as a pain in the ass. But our little Grinch hearts grew three sizes each time we talked to people who actually volunteered and gave of their time – even as we struggled to figure out whether doing stories on this stuff is a conflict of interest.

Comes news that seems economically relevant this year. A friend who works for Teles Properties – a real estate company – says the traditional company party is off this year. Instead, Teles realtors are going to do some Heal the Bay volunteering: they’re meeting for a 2 1/2 hour cleanup – Heal the Bay traditionally does a little edjumacation at the beginning of that, about beach trash and urban coastal issues (at least if KPCC’s own sessions are any guide).
