Today begins Seize the Day's annual Project Christmas. In Phase I, we bring on Hearts of Joy International, which specializes in raising money for children with Downs Syndrome in need of heart surgery. Gus is joined by organization founder Lauren Costabile and, over the course of an hour, our generous listeners donated over $10,000. If you were unable to pledge during the live show but would like to donate, you may do so here.
Later, Gus talks about religious gift-giving to friends and family who aren't religious and he gives a few copies of his new book, A Minute in the Church: Back to the Basics, to listeners.
