The Puggle: December 2020 edition

Dana Schmidt | December 16, 2020

We have spent this year vacillating between feeling crushed by the pain and devastation this year has brought and feeling inspired by the coming together of many people to meet the needs of this moment. Our final Puggle for this year reflects on both the gifts and “gifts” of 2020, which can be read to the tune of Twelve Days of Chirstmas. We are being tongue-in-cheek with this one not to make light of the crises this year has wrought, but because we need humor to cope with what the year has dealt us. Our wish to all of you as we wind down the year is that you find moments of rest and that you steal some joy from whatever corner you can find it in. We need the fuel for the year ahead, when the fight for the promise of girls’ education will continue.
