Survive holidays on budget with H&FF Radio
WASHINGTON (12/26/12)--Last Sunday's H&FF Radio prepared listeners for the holidays with party, charitable giving, and shopping tips.

The show, which you also can hear later via the Internet, features Paul Berry, Washington, D.C., journalist and broadcaster, discussed these topics with special guests:

  • "Holiday Party Survival Guide." Andrea Woroch, consumer expert, Kinoli Inc., Fort Collins, Colo., advised party hosts and guests about gift-giving and more.
  • "Seasonal Giving." Mark Bergel, founder and executive director of A Wider Circle, Silver Spring, Md., suggested end-of-year charitable giving strategies.
  • "10 Reasons to Give Cards." Kendal Perez, marketing coordinator, Kinoli Inc., Fort Collins, Colo., and a self-confessed shopaholic and bargain hunter, weighed in on the pros and cons of giving gift cards.
