A Very Happy New Year to Everyone from Las Vegas
I hope that the new year brings all the joys and dreams to fruition for everyone out there.
In spite of the sluggish economy the hotels are reporting almost 100% occupancy for the holiday weekend. That's wonderful news to a lot of people needing work, but please remember that Vegas also has a very high rate of homeless teens. So while thousands of people will be celebrating on the Strip, thousands of teens will also be trying to keep warm, find food, and just survive the welcoming new year.
If you want to help, please visit the Nevada Partnership for Homeless Youth, a wonderful organization that provides so many services to homeless teens, by visiting their site and remembering that not everyone is just "getting by."
