Crick your way to a more meaningful holiday If the crowds, commercialism and consumer crush of Christmas have you longing for more soulful celebrating, put off the singing chipmunks for a visit to Benevo- lent Planet At, a public service website offering "a simple path to more purposeful living," there are easy ways to reconnect with the true spirit of the season. The site's Monthly Mission for December is Observing a More Meaningful Holiday, with useful resources and tips aimed at tam- ing the inner Grinch. Click on Lo- cal Planet for ways to make the holidays brighter specifically in Sussex County. "Many people would prefer an alternative to the usual mall marathon, parade of parties, and baking-cooking-decorating fren- zy," said Karen Jones, a Rehoboth Beach resident and founder of Benevolent Planet. "Most run through the same routine regardless, out of either habit or guilt. But you can start a new tradition of more meaningful holidays with just a few purpose- ful steps." Recommendations include gift- buying that benefits charitable causes, eco-friendly decorating and simple community service options. "A more meaningful hol- iday isn't about planning or or- ganizing the traditional elements - shopping, decorating, entertaining - more efficiently," Jones said, "nor is it necessarily a simpler holiday. Making or finding cre- ative gifts takes time, and there's nothing simple about explaining dramatic changes to expectant rel- atives and colleagues. But once you experience the freedom of celebrating what matters most to you, and perhaps giving some of your reclaimed time to helping others in need, you'll wonder why you didn't get off the 'buy-buy' bandwagon years ago." Benevolent Planet's mission is to provide simple ways for busy people to make a difference in their communities and in the world. Each week, the website's Daily Planet lists seven things people can do, in the course of just one day, to effect positive change. (Some take as little as five minutes.) None of the actions requires a financial donation. Users also find ways to donate goods - old cell phones, computer, work clothing and more - to organizations that-- benefit domestic violence victims, troubled schools, welfare-to-work programs and others in need. The website will be complemented by a book, "The Difference a Day Makes: 365 Ways to Change the World in Just 24 Hours," sched- uled for publication in 2004.
