With the 132nd annual Red Kettle campaign underway, the longest-running philanthropic fundraiser of its kind, The Salvation Army is emphasizing its mission of serving those most vulnerable through this year’s “Love Beyond” messaging. Love Beyond is also a symbol of the resources and programs that 25 million people rely on year-round when they turn to the nation’s largest direct provider of social services for assistance.

“More than 2 million people rely on The Salvation Army during the holiday season alone, but the truth is our communities need help year-round” said Commissioner Kenneth G. Hodder, National Commander of The Salvation Army. “Financial support on Giving Tuesday is critical to providing love beyond the holidays to millions in need whether through emergency disaster services, housing, feeding, or youth support.”

The number of those in need of food, shelter and utilities assistance continues to rise as families face challenges ahead of the holidays. Latest numbers from the US Census Bureau show 91.8 million Americans have had difficulty paying for essential household expenses.

“Expenses to shelter and feed the most vulnerable have dramatically increased due to inflation and supply chain issues. Food prices have seen their highest increase since 1979. Requests for help are growing across the country with many Salvation Army locations seeing an increase from 30%-50%. That’s why Giving Tuesday matters.” added Hodder.

Funds raised in 2021 supported services for more than 25 million people living in America. To get involved on Giving Tuesday with The Salvation Army:

  • Visit SalvationArmyUSA.org and enlist in Love’s Army with a sustaining gift of $25 per month. A $25 monthly gift over the course of one year provides:
    • More than 234 meals to those in need
    • Christmas presents for 4 children
    • Overdue utility bill payments for a family in need
  • Donate digitally with Apple Pay, Google Pay, PayPal, and Venmo at any Red Kettle across the country
  • Donate cryptocurrency such as Bitcoin or Ethereum
  • Ask Amazon Alexa to donate by saying, “Alexa, donate to The Salvation Army,” then specifying the amount
  • Give any amount by texting “KETTLES” to 51555
  • Encourage friends and family to give virtually through options like Facebook Fundraiser

Every donation provides help and hope to those in need, and all gifts remain in the community in which they are given.

Across the nation, volunteers and supporters will participate in Giving Tuesday activations to raise awareness of the need for support, including celebrities, artists, and influencers. In New York City, The Salvation Army will once again stand up the biggest red kettle the city has ever seen, bringing with it holiday cheer and a call for digital donations and community togetherness.

To learn more about how The Salvation Army meets human needs around the holidays and throughout the year, visit SalvationArmyUSA.org.

Oscar and Grammy winning actress and singer Irene Cara has passed away at the age of 63, according to her publicist. Cara died at her home in Largo, Florida, on November 25, 2022. The cause of death is unknown.

Cara sang and co-wrote the song “Flashdance… What a Feeling” (from the movie Flashdance), for which she won an Academy Award for Best Original Song and a Grammy award winner Irene Cara for Best Female Pop Vocal Performance in 1984. Cara is also known for playing the role of Coco Hernandez in the 1980 film Fame, and for recording the film’s title song “Fame”.

Prior to her success with Fame, Cara portrayed the title character Sparkle Williams in the original 1976 musical drama film Sparkle.

“This is the absolute worst part of being a publicist. I can’t believe I’ve had to write this, let alone release the news. Please share your thoughts and memories of Irene. I’ll be reading each and every one of them and know she’ll be smiling from Heaven. She adored her fans,” Judith Moose said in a tweet announcing the singer’s death.

Irene Cara won a Golden Globe Award as well as a nomination for Best Supporting Actress, a Peoples Choice Award, an Obie Award as a child for her work in theatre, an Image Award as well as countless other industry honors for outstanding actress, singer and composer. She remains a beloved icon for an entire generation and an inspiration to young performers all over the world.

Grammy award winner Irene Cara has been a triple threat veteran entertainer since she first dazzled audiences at the tender age of five. The youngest daughter of a Latin musician, she began her career singing and dancing on Spanish television performing with her fathers’ mambo band.

Grammy award winner Irene Cara went on to be a prominent actress with leading roles in theatre, television and films. Although, as a teenager, Grammy award winner Irene Cara worked as a background vocalist for many famous recording stars, it was during her breakout role in the acclaimed 1980 musical “Fame” that she was signed to be a recording artist in her own right.

Are you one of the millions of shoppers who prefer going online rather than standing in line to buy holiday gifts? The Postal Service has you covered on Cyber Monday and throughout the holidays. Count on us to get your packages to their destination in time for all the seasonal celebrations.

2022 Holiday Shipping Deadlines

Timing is everything, especially when it comes to shipping holiday items. The Postal Service recommends the following mailing and shipping deadlines for expected delivery by Dec. 25 to Air/Army Post Office/Fleet Post Office/Diplomatic Post Office (APO/FPO/DPO) and certain domestic addresses*:

  • Dec. 9   — APO/FPO/DPO (all ZIP Codes) Priority Mail and First-Class Mail
  • Dec. 16 — APO/FPO/DPO (except ZIP Code 093) USPS Priority Mail Express Military service
  • Dec. 17 — USPS Retail Ground service
  • Dec. 17 — First-Class Mail service (including greeting cards)
  • Dec. 17 — First-Class Package Service (up to 15.99 ounces)
  • Dec. 19 — Priority Mail service
  • Dec. 22 — Priority Mail Express* service
Alaska
  • Dec. 2   — Alaska to/from Continental U.S. – USPS Retail Ground
  • Dec. 18 — Alaska to/from Continental U.S. – First-Class Mail and Priority Mail
  • Dec. 21 — Alaska to/from Continental U.S. – Priority Mail Express
Hawaii
  • Dec. 17  — Hawaii to/from mainland – First-Class Mail and Priority Mail
  • Dec. 21  — Hawaii to/from mainland – Priority Mail Express

*

Not a guarantee, unless otherwise noted. Dates are for estimated delivery before Dec. 25. Actual delivery date may vary, depending on origin, destination, Post Office acceptance date and time, and other conditions. Some restrictions apply. For Priority Mail Express shipments mailed Dec. 22 through Dec. 25, the money-back guarantee applies only if the shipment was not delivered, or if delivery was not attempted, within two business days.

To send packages to loved ones serving in the military or at diplomatic posts abroad, the Postal Service offers a discounted shipping price of $20.95 on its largest Priority Mail Flat Rate Box. The price includes a $1.50-per-box discount for mail sent to APO/FPO/DPO destinations worldwide.

To handle this year’s holiday surge, the Postal Service is expanding Sunday deliveries in high package volume locations. Mail carriers will also deliver Priority Mail Express packages on Christmas Day for an additional fee in select locations.

As a reminder, there are temporary price increases in place through 12:01 a.m. Central, Jan 22, 2023. The increase affects both retail and business customers for some of our more popular shipping products, including military shipping. International products are unaffected. These temporary rates help keep the Postal Service competitive and are similar to adjustments in past years to help cover extra handling costs to ensure a successful peak season. More information can be found on our website.

The temporary adjustment is part of Delivering for America, the Postal Service’s 10-year plan for achieving financial sustainability and service excellence, which calls for appropriate pricing initiatives. Even with the temporary increase, the Postal Service has some of the lowest mail postage rates in the industrialized world and continues to offer great values in shipping.

Ship From Home

Don’t feel like going to a Post Office location to drop off your special gift? You can go online to usps.com or use the Click-N-Ship feature for help shipping that special holiday gift, ordering free Priority Mail boxes*, printing shipping labels, purchasing postage, and even requesting free next-day Package Pickup. And usps.com is always open.

*

Boxes are delivered within the U.S. with your regular mail, usually within seven to 10 business days. Exclusions apply. For details and to order, visit store.usps.com/store/home.

Busiest Week

The busiest time of the season for the Postal Service begins two weeks before Christmas. It’s expected that customer traffic at all Post Office locations will steadily increase beginning the week of Dec. 5. The week of Dec. 12 is anticipated to be the busiest mailing, shipping and delivery week of the season.

Holiday How-Tos

The Postal Service offers shipping tips in 10 video “how to” guides. Each video is less than three minutes long and shows how to properly address and ship packages,  how to pack a box so items arrive safely, and more.

For safety reasons, effective June 6, packages containing hazardous materials — in particular, lithium-ion batteries — must now be mailed by surface transportation using Parcel Select Ground or USPS Retail Ground, Parcel Return Service or Ground Return Service. The Postal Service issued the new requirements for shipping used electronics and other hazardous materials because items of this nature can cause fires and other dangers to mailers, air carriers, aircraft passengers and others.

Customers can find detailed information on common hazardous, restricted and perishable materials in the Postal Service’s Publication 52, Hazardous, Restricted, and Perishable Mail.

Mail and packages weighing more than 10 ounces and/or more than a half-inch thick cannot be dropped into a collection box or left for a carrier to pick up if you’re using stamps for postage. Instead, take them to a retail associate at any of our Post Office locations or use one of our self-service kiosks to weigh your packages and print shipping labels.

Additional news and information — including all shipping deadlines — can be found on the Postal Service’s Holiday Newsroom webpage.

The Postal Service generally receives no tax dollars for operating expenses and relies on the sale of postage, products and services to fund its operations.

Whether you have long hair or mid-length, this is the perfect stocking stuffer for any teenager or women of any age, and even for guys…

In fact, Lilla Rose is a hair jewelry company which was founded by John Dorsey. It is the perfect accessory that will not damage your hair.

I first came across Lilla Rose hair clips when I received a pack of Flexi Sport Barrettes. I have worn them since I was a child but these ones were quite different. You can wear them all day and they will never slip off of your hair.

Perfect for all hair types, they come in three sizes: XS, Small and Medium. They’re even 100% water proof. Easy to use, the Dual pin flip to hold the amount of hair you choose. Last, but not least, they come in many colors.

I could not resist visiting their website and check out if they had anything for the holidays. It turns out that they have an impressive array of styles: From the Snow Flake to beaded styles and everything you can imagine; hair clips, hairbands, bobbies, sticks, u-pins, charms, essentials, etc.

It is the perfect gift for those who love dressing up their hair.

Nail polish can make for the best stocking stuffers!

I have been a fan of PRITI NYC nail polish for a couple of years now because they are Vegan Cruelty Free and Gluten Free.

The company was founded in 2005 by Kim D’Amato who started PRITI NYC during her pregnancy. She made a conscious effort to switch to organic foods and health products, yet she couldn’t seem to find a way to beautify herself in the same natural manner.

PRITI NYC also offers many different polish colors. Not so long ago, I decided to try their Fall shades of their orange and earth vegan nail polish trio.

I love an option that gives me the freedom to change my color weekly, according to my wardrobe. The collection includes: superstar, bees sunset and terra-cotta daisy.

You can buy them in sets or individually.

If you are looking for a great red shade, check out the 318 American Beauty. It is one of my favorites.

PRITI NYC is perfect for the holidays and perfect for stocking stuffers.

Nicole Kidman will be the recipient of the 49th AFI Life Achievement Award, the highest honor for a career in film, celebrating her career achievements thus far. The award will be presented to Kidman at a Gala Tribute at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles on Saturday, June 10, 2023. She is the first Australian actor to receive this honor.

“Nicole Kidman has enchanted audiences for decades with the daring of her artistry and the glamour of a screen icon,” said Kathleen Kennedy, Chair of the AFI Board of Trustees. “She is a force both brave in her choices and bold in each performance. AFI is honored to present her with the 49th AFI Life Achievement Award.”

Both a powerhouse performer, spellbinding movie star and accomplished producer, Nicole Kidman has captured the imaginations of audiences around the world throughout her prolific career, delivering complex and versatile performances onscreen. Seamlessly moving between independent and studio films, Kidman has earned a reputation for her extraordinary talent, commitment to her craft and desire to work with auteur filmmakers including Jane Campion, Sofia Coppola, Baz Luhrmann, Anthony Minghella, Sydney Pollack, Lars von Trier and Stanley Kubrick.

A five-time Academy Award® nominee, Kidman’s wonderfully restrained and transformational turn as Virginia Woolf in THE HOURS earned her the Oscar® for Best Actress in 2003. Following her stunning breakthrough performance in 1989’s DEAD CALM, Kidman has captivated global audiences, from her daring performance as Alice Harford in EYES WIDE SHUT and enchanting Satine in MOULIN ROUGE!, to her raw turn as Grace Margaret Mulligan in DOGVILLE and her enthralling portrayal of Lucille Ball in BEING THE RICARDOS. Throughout her distinguished career, Kidman has won a BAFTA Award, two Emmys® and six Golden Globes – and is widely regarded as one of the finest actresses of her generation. She co-founded her production company Blossom Films in 2010.

Across film and television, she has delivered remarkably nuanced performances characterized by their unflinching courage, vulnerability and tenacity, with additional acting credits including: DAYS OF THUNDER (1990), FAR AND AWAY (1992), BATMAN FOREVER (1995), TO DIE FOR (1995), THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY (1996), PRACTICAL MAGIC (1998), THE OTHERS (2001), THE HUMAN STAIN (2003), COLD MOUNTAIN (2003), BIRTH (2004), THE INTERPRETER (2005), AUSTRALIA (2008), NINE (2009),  RABBIT HOLE (2010), THE PAPERBOY (2012), STOKER (2013), PADDINGTON (2014), QUEEN OF THE DESERT (2015), LION (2016), THE KILLING OF A SACRED DEER (2017), THE BEGUILED (2017), THE UPSIDE (2017), BOY ERASED (2018), DESTROYER (2018), AQUAMAN (2018), BOMBSHELL (2019), and THE NORTHMAN (2022). She has also starred in and produced multiple critically acclaimed television programs, including HEMINGWAY & GELLHORN (2012), BIG LITTLE LIES (2017-2019), TOP OF THE LAKE (2017), THE UNDOING (2020), and NINE PERFECT STRANGERS (2021).

In theater, Kidman made a highly-lauded London stage debut in the fall of 1998, starring with Iain Glen in “The Blue Room,” David Hare’s modern adaptation of Schnitzler’s “La Ronde.” For her performance, Kidman won London’s Evening Standard Award and was nominated in the Best Actress category for a Laurence Olivier Award. In 2015, Kidman was seen on the West End stage in Anna Ziegler’s “Photograph 51,” for which she received a London’s Evening Standard Award.

In January of 2006, Kidman was awarded Australia’s highest honor, the Companion of the Order of Australia. She was also awarded the Berlin Film Festival’s Silver Bear award for her performance in THE HOURS. In 2017, the Cannes Film Festival honored Kidman with the 70th Anniversary Prize for her body of work and longstanding history with the festival. She is one of only eight people to ever receive this honor.

Kidman has served as Goodwill Ambassador for UN Women for nearly two decades. Along with her husband, Keith Urban, she has helped raise millions over the years for the Stanford Women’s Cancer Program which is a world-renowned center for research into the causes, treatment, prevention, and eventual cure of women’s cancer.

Kidman’s many upcoming projects include Lulu Wang’s EXPATS for Amazon, AQUAMAN AND THE LOST KINGDOM for Warner Brothers, LIONESS for Paramount+, and HOLLAND, MICHIGAN for Amazon.

Ballooning Icons
Conceived during the Parade’s infancy, the giant character balloons have become a signature of the annual celebration. Since 1927, the world’s most popular characters have been transformed into high-flying art in the sky. Originally inspired by marionettes, the Parade’s balloons first debuted as upside down puppets filled with air which were carried down the Parade route on sticks.

New giants joining the line-up this year include Bluey by BBC; Diary of A Wimpy Kid®by Abrams Books; DINO and Baby DINO by Sinclair Oil; and Stuart the Minion from Illumination.
