succumbing to peer pressure

People can take your breath away, sometimes for good reasons, sometimes for bad

The Bad
Thieves stole $50,000 worth of toys and electronics from the Empty Stocking Fund, a local organization that provides gift packages to underprivileged children during the holiday season.

The Good
Local radio station Project 961 (the Chuck Palahniuk of radio stations) is hosting a 50 hour 'lock in' to raise the money back for ESF. At the moment, they're at $71,000! The stories from listeners are awesome and heartwarming - everything from little kids donating their allowance to a guy who worked out a $16,000 donation through his grandparents' charity organization!
