This holiday season we reached out to fans on both Twitter and Facebook to find out what you had to say about some holiday topics. We got so many great answers that we wanted to share a recap here on our blog:

1.  During this season of giving what organizations do you give to most?

WYCD:  This year What You Can Do is matching "likes" with meals donated to Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen we will match up to 1200 likes with meals. You can click here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.phpfbid=10152087886858606&set=a.240442418605.137875.94542848605&type=1&theater

2.   What are simple ways that you can help fight Hunger?

WYCD: Donating to a local food drive or volunteering at a local food bank in your community is a great way to help the fight against hunger. Don't know of a food bank in your area?  Go here for a location search: http://feedingamerica.org/foodbank-results.aspx#

WYCD FANS:

3.  Do you practice any eco-friendly holiday wrapping or decorating? If so what do you use? 

WYCD:  Consider using newspaper, recycled wrapping paper, subway maps, old fabrics, past child artwork or sheet music. Maybe choose a Charlie Brown Tree or a potted tree that you can plant after the holidays.  You can get more ideas from our Holiday Video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TL9KuKCvYgc



WYCD FANS:

Buick Audra I recycle all wrapping paper and tissue - and definitely ribbon. We planted a memorial tree in our yard for our beloved kitty last month, and we intend to decorate it in coming years, in lieu of having a tree inside.

4.  Have you ever volunteered at a food bank/soup kitchen in your area? If so which one?
