My challenge for December is to post – among other posts – links to uplifting stories and videos, be it music or news that makes us smile for a while. Enjoy, comment, like and share. If you have a personal, or local story to share (like the one below about the Riveras and their annual Thanksgiving gift to Las Vegas, N.M.), or know of one, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with a lead and I’ll follow up.

A local and amazing story about giving freely and with joy. Thanks to The Las Vegas Optic for publishing this article. More than 700 people were served this year by Helen Rivera, her family, and volunteer servers/helpers. (Note: if you are not an optic subscriber, you may need to sign up for limited access to read the story.)
