I really do seem to be getting into the festive spirit this year! We've just helped launch another not-for-profit seasonal site, this time called Twixtmas -

Go and take a look at the site, or for a bit more information first, read the press release below:

Forget the festive over indulgence, the shopping for things you don't really need, or the binge celebrations for New Year - a new landmark is now in the offing - the five days of Twixtmas between December 27th -31st - as the time for you to look after yourself, help others, or protect the planet.

Five leading charities are getting behind a campaign to transform the time between Christmas and New Year and encourage everyone to do at least five things to change their world.

The five days of Twixtmas, campaigners argue, is an ideal opportunity for the estimated 3 million people in the UK who will be on holiday throughout the period to overcome time poverty and do something positive instead of scoffing, shopping and slothing in these credit crunch times.

Each of the five days of Twixtmas is themed to offer a way of making the most of each day where people are invited to celebrate themselves, do something unselfish by celebrating others, and do something for a friend, for the planet, or for their future.

Heading up the Twixtmas call are leading charities the Foundation for Peace, Global Action Plan, the National Autistic Society, and World Vision, along with Jumble Aid..

To spread the Twixtmas cheer people are being encouraged to give their friends and family a 'Twixtmas High Five' hand greeting and share their Twixtmas pledge - the five things they are doing to change their world, as well as spreading the word about Twixtmas and what it stands for.

The campaign is also providing a range of valuable tips and advice from leading experts in personal development and well-being to help everyone make the most of the opportunity of the Twixtmas period on the campaign web site Visitors can also download their own Twixtmas Pledge form.

The Twixtmas campaign has been developed by the Flexible Thinking Forum, a not-for-profit organisation promoting flexible and creative thinking skills in business and the community, encouraging people to challenge set ways of thinking.

Commenting on the launch of Twixtmas, Andy Green of the Flexible Thinking Forum said: "Most of us live in abject poverty when it comes to a key part of modern day life - we are incredibly time poor.

"The time between the Christmas and New Year holiday is a fantastic opportunity to take the Twixtmas Pledge and do at least five things to change our world for the better covering the spectrum of caring for people, peace, poverty, passing things on, or the planet. Who knows, Twixtmas could become as recognized as the other festive holidays."
