For many families at this time of year, a crackling fire is the ideal backdrop to holiday festivities. But not everyone can enjoy that experience in real life – hence the popularity of “Yule Log” videos that serve that same purpose electronically.
This year, as part of its “Light the Fire of HOPE” year-end fundraising appeal, KidsPeace is unveiling its own “Yule Log” presentation to help all its friends and supporters set a festive mood in the background of their holiday celebrations.
“Happy Holidays from KidsPeace” imagines a visit to the David Small Pavilion at KidsPeace’s Orchard Hills campus by a tired St. Nick, who takes the chance to relax for a while by the pavilion’s fireplace (enjoying milk and cookies, of course!). He looks at a card left for him, which has the “Burning Heart” client artwork image for the annual appeal. In addition to the artwork, the card includes a poignant quote from the young artist as to what it means to them:
“My heart and my fire are like a burning rage that needs to be shown how to do the right thing.”
You can see and play the Yule Log presentation from YouTube.
