I am the social media strategist at the Commonwealth of Massachusetts where I focus on increasing citizen engagement through all digital channels including social media, web strategy and content, video and audio production, and graphic design.
Established in 1962, Action for Boston Community Development, Inc. (ABCD)
is Boston’s official anti-poverty agency and services over 85,000 low-income
Greater Boston residents. Their annual toy drive has been in existence for over 30 years and during that time they have been able to donate toys to thousands of underprivileged children in the Boston area.
The toy drive is an important yearly effort that allows us to bring a little
extra cheer to many families who otherwise may not have had the financial
ability to provide for their families at this very important time of the year.
The launch of our toy drive will be at the upcoming LFC Boston Ugly Sweater Holiday Party on Dec. 6 at the Phoenix Landing, 5-9 p.m. You will learn more details about the Toy Drive and select a child’s wish list at this event.
Toy donations will be accepted during the following LFC matches:
Tue, Dec. 9 vs. Basel
Sun, Dec. 14 vs. Manchester United
Wed, Dec. 17 vs. Bournemouth
If you are unable to get to the Phoenix Landing but are interested in sponsoring a child, please contact Kristine McKenna, LFC Boston’s Charity and Outreach Coordinator at KristineMcKenna@LFCBoston.com.
This Sunday, LFC Boston members will have priority entry to the Phoenix Landing for Championship Sunday. Need I tell you that LFC could still win the title this year!
Doors will open at 8:30am. LFC Boston Members Only will be allowed in to the bar 8:30-8:45am. (15 minute window) Simply skip the line and show your member card to the bouncer.
Non-members will not be allowed into the bar until 8:45am sharp. There will be no exceptions.
One member card = one entry.
If you are a member and arrive after 8:45am, you will have to get in line with everyone else as priority entry WILL NOT apply after 8:45am.
I advise members to get to the Landing no later than 8:15am. There will be one line for members and one line for general admission.
NBC will be at the Landing on Sunday and want to do live shots of LFC Boston singing before, during, and after the game. Bring your scarves and flags, and your singing voice and let’s show America and the world, what our wonderful supporters club is all about. Also, please post your photos to Twitter using #LFCBoston, #PHXSoccer, and #BPLonNBC and we’ll ReTweet them during the game on the @LFCBoston account – so will NBC and the Phoenix Landing.
We are Liverpool.
(If you are not a member but want to watch the game with LFC Boston on Sunday, you are advised to get in line as early as possible.) Once members get into the bar, there will be room for 40-60 LFC fans through general admission.
Quick update on the NStar walk for Children’s Hospital as it is a little over two weeks away. We have four members registered for the team so far and are on track to raise at least $1000 for the hospital. If you want to sign up, there is a $200 minimum fundraising goal per person. OR, you can just donate to the team.

When you join the N-Star Walk, you can choose what programs you would like to sponsor within the hospital and set your own personal goal for fundraising. You can register here. We hope you walk with us on June 8th!
Boston Children’s Hospital is ranked #1 in more specialties than any other pediatric hospital by U.S. News & World Report. Here are a few reasons why:
The hospital’s patient care programs provide the best, most innovative care possible.
Researchers regularly make amazing discoveries that change children’s lives.
Boston Children’s welcomes kids whose families can’t afford health care–more than any other hospital in Massachusetts.
Community programs makes a point of reaching out to help low-income and at-risk kids.
And the hospital doesn’t just stop there. Boston Children’s really understands the importance of training the next generation of top children’s healthcare providers.
Support the hospital by joining Team LFC Boston or making a gift to one of our team members.
Liverpool’s victory over Chelsea was the last game played in the Community Shield at Cardiff’s Millennium Stadium. Over 56,000 people traveled to the game in Wales that day to see John Arne Riise produce a moment of brilliance to help Liverpool on their way to victory.
Chelsea fans were ecstatic to see new signing Andriy Shevchenko score on his debut for the club, but it was Riise’s goal that will be remembered. The left-back picked up the ball from inside Liverpool’s penalty box, before running the length of the pitch and firing the ball into the bottom corner past Cudicini.
