A few weeks ago, Kristen participated in a charity flag football game hosted by NRG Energy. She played for a charity called Red Paw Emergency Relief Team, who received $2,500 from NRG when her team won. Jen Leary and Lori Albright from Red Paw Emergency Relief Team now join Kristen in the BEN-FM studio to talk about their organization which assists displaced pets and their people and even bravely rescues pets from active fires. Learn more about this incredible organization, and please consider donating to Red Paw Emergency Relief. If you donate this Tuesday – Giving Tuesday, Facebook and PayPal will match your donation.

Christmas Village is in its 11th season in Philadelphia, now open and set up this year in the newly renovated LOVE Park. Kristen is joined by Toby Fischer, the PR & Social Media Manager at both Christmas Village in Philadelphia AND the Made in Philadelphia Holiday Market to talk about this authentic open-air German Christmas market, with holiday sights and sounds, thousands of twinkling lights, festive Christmas decorations, live music, children’s activities, themed weekends, photos with Santa, delicious food and warm mulled wine and hot chocolate. Shoppers will find high-quality international and local gifts along with beautiful decorations. The Philadelphia Market will also feature a number of locally made art, gifts, food and drink. Charisse McGill joins Kristen and Toby in studio with her French Toast Bites. Find Charisse (and her delicious French Toast Bites) in Booth 41 this year at the Made in Philadelphia Market.
