CLBR’S CYBER THANKSGIVING SPECIAL
For the 6th year, we celebrate the Wednesday before Thanksgiving with a special show featuring a guest panel discussing websites/apps they are grateful for, recommendations for Giving Tuesday and maybe even share what they will be cooking for Thanksgiving (in my case it will be Rhode Island Red Clam Chowder using the Rocky Point Park recipe).
Meet Our Guests
Pete Kronowitt and Benét Wilson return from last year and Kalika Yap joins us for the first time. Collectively, I have known these three for 87 years.

Tuesday, November 28, 2017, is Giving Tuesday, a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving. Be sure to share your donations on social media so they have the maximum impact.
