    Don Liimatainen is the CEO and founder of the Best Christmas Ever organization, a local Minneapolis nonprofit that helps families in need have an amazing Christmas. Last year Backpocket and Straight Candid worked with the Best Christmas Ever organization and the community raised over $10,000 for a local family in need!

    Your kindness paid for gifts for the family, paid for a few months of rent, and basically saved the family from getting evicted from their home!

    Surprising this family last year was incredible and we’re stoked to do it all over again!

    This year we’re sponsoring a family of 6 who’ve fallen on hard times and they’re currently living out of a hotel.

    Our goal this year is to raise $20,000 to help get this family out of a hotel and into a home!

Warms the heart.

I have been grinding on this podcast, and I am excited to translate this work ethic to other aspects of life. I started on Monday and now on Thursday I am on episode 36. I have loved every minute of it because it is so unique and chill. Unlike most podcasters, they are not so serious about themselves and life is better and less stressful as they are going away from the not so good parts of the adult world. You can learn a lot from this podcast as a side effect. It makes my heart happy to follow this journey and it inspires me to make journeys of my own, live life with a little more energy, and let life surprise me!

I enjoyed the rest of the podcast because I had listened to the first part some time back and decided to finish it this morning. I like the optimistic plan for the use of subscriptions to provide listeners with a way to take advantage of the backpocket advertisers. I also like the love and respect for each other.
