The Chicago Cares Serve-a-thon is the largest day of community service in Chicago. Join thousands of volunteers to paint a brighter future for Chicago children. Help students succeed as we beautify Chicago school classrooms, libraries and playgrounds! In just one day, Serve-a-thon volunteers transform schools into wonderful, vibrant places to learn and grow.

Now doesn't that sound like fun? has pledged to raise $100 for Chicago Cares towards this event as well. If you are interested in helping financially as opposed to physically, that works all the same!

Shoot an email to if you are interested. Rumor has it that treats will be provided.



Looptopia 08' : This Friday

For those of you who had a chance to experience Looptopia last year, you know that this event is one of a kind.

From "Inspired by "White Night" events in cities like Rome, Paris, and Madrid, Looptopia made its wildly successful debut as the first American event of its kind last year. And Looptopia 2008 is shaping up to be even more spectacular than the first."

Also check out the site for maps, featured artists and a hour-by-hour event guide (sweet!).

My only caution to you folks is to make sure you wear some warm and comfy clothes ( although a good portion of the events take place in doors, it may rain and it is a little chilly) and limit the random valuables you bring (its fun..but hey better comfy and safe than sorry).
