What`s Trending | VideoAlyssa Marino | 12/14/2012
Let`s face it, some have a little bit of a "Scrooge" in them around the holidays, but not as much as this feline. Meet Grumpy Cat. Who`s become an internet sensation. Grumpy Cat, or Tardar Sauce, is an actual cat who`s face really does look like this. So, for the holidays, her owner made memes just to show how excited she really is. As you can tell, she`s full of Christmas cheer, or not. Check out the whole website dedicated to her.
And if you`re not feeling grumpy and looking for ways to give back during the holidays, trending locally, are some new opportunities at the MSA United Way! 45 percent of children under the age of five in a single family home are living in poverty. The Missouri Slope Area United Way aims to give back to those children and families. Especially during their campaign season happening now.
Until December 17, they`re offering "Giving Trees" where you can select a child or family off the tree and donate a gift to them. You can also donate money in the name of someone else.
Executive Director, Jena Gullo says every amount matters. "There are so many different ways to give. Give up your time, advocate for people in need. But if you can afford to give even a dollar or two, it all adds up. Every dollar counts."
If you want to get involved, visit their Facebook page or website for more information. Or, just stop by their office on 4th street.
