During the hustle and bustle of the holiday season, our minds are often consumed with thoughts of of giving and receiving the right gifts. 🎁

But thanks to the message behind a series of two special holiday charity events in Western New York, everyone is now able to choose what really is the most important gift of the season, while also remembering the real meaning behind the most wonderful time of the year, especially for our children. 🤗

Award-winning children's author and the creator of the Nature Nurtures Storybook Series, Jennifer Lynn/JLW, along with Empowered Publicity's Jonathan Masiulionis join News 4 Buffalo WIVB Katie Alexander this Saturday morning (@ 7:25AM ET) on News 4 WIVB Buffalo's Wake Up to share a sneak preview of Choosing Kindness For Christmas At The Audubon Library and Choosing Kindness For Christmas At The Lancaster Public Library, taking place Saturday, November 30th at the Amherst Public Libraries' Audubon Library and Saturday, December 14th at the Lancaster Public Library), the proceeds of which benefit Oishei Children's Hospital's Child Life Department. 📺

For those of our neighbors outside the Buffalo, New York/Western New York viewing area, we will be sharing the interview link right here at Empowered Publicity Saturday afternoon. 💻
