Wishing you the gift of hope, inspiration and possibility 
Happy holidays! We know everyone is busy this time of the year, but we hope you'll take a few moments to watch the stories below. Each will bring a bit of holiday cheer into your life and remind you of the importance of giving back and preserving the past. As we gather with our families this holiday season, we'll be remembering you, our extended family, and saying a special thanks for helping us to grow this past year and spread the Growing Bolder philosophy. During this happiest of all seasons, we wish for you the gift of hope, inspiration and possibility. Happy holidays!

Building Joy With Toys
After 364 days of work, a special group of woodworking "elves" celebrated with a holiday toy giveaway. Come along to see the holiday spirit brought to life through the eyes of deserving kids, many of whom have never owned a new toy in their young lives. And see why it's never too late to find a way to change your community.

Hangin' At Santa's Summer Crib
Before Santa Claus headed north for the winter, he invited GB into his summer house in Christmas, Florida, to explain why answering letters and making Christmas wishes come true for children all across the country is something he takes very seriously. See how a little magic can go a long way.

Holiday Displays of Yesterday
Remember when the holiday season unfolded before you behind the glass of storefront windows with scenes of winter wonderlands, Santa's workshop and animated figures? A man who set up windows on Madison Avenue has rescued many from the trash.

Do We Need More Holiday Traditions?
In today's Pinterest-obsessed world, it's easy to feel like you're not doing enough to create a festive environment for your kids. But is all of that really necessary? A couple years ago, GB Founder Marc Middleton worried he wasn't incorporating enough traditions into his family's holidays. See what he discovered about passing down REAL traditions to his daughters.
