PR Firms Keep the Holiday Cheer Coming

In the past couple of weeks since we posted a story about the good works and well wishes coming from PR firms for the holiday season, there’s been a whole lot more, and its getting even more elaborate.

The clip above is from Carmichael Lynch and Carmichael Lynch Spong, which not only created this wacky and very creepy stocking character, but gave him a Facebook page.

On Friday, Horn Group hosted Tech the Halls, DJ battles on Turntable.fm among 14 members of the tech media to benefit One Laptop Per Child. TechCrunch’s Josh Constine won and the firm crowdsourced its fundraising to reach the $10,000 goal, and the firm says 2,500 people tuned in.

Waggener Edstrom has been good enough to create an online book of holiday recipes from around the world that you can download here. (The Radler sounds pretty good right about now.) And MWW Group brings us “Annie’s Holiday Wish List,” which sounds a lot like what clients would like to get this year also.

Thanks to everyone who has sent along holiday wishes of both the paper and digital variety. It’s making us just slightly less bah humbug this year.
