Friday Forecast: One of Our Own Captures the Spirit of the Holidays

by Rick Petry on Dec 8, 2017 1:48:07 PM Marketing


This week your Friday Forecaster takes a slight departure from his regular blog to share a video featuring one of ERA’s own. Pitchman extraordinaire Anthony “Sully” Sullivan is part of an initiative called “Layaway Angels.”

Take two minutes to watch this moving segment from Inside Edition which, as a clerk from ToysRUs who was moved to tears remarks is what the holidays is "all about.” Kudos to Sully and his partners for providing such leadership and for no doubt inspiring others to realize that the holidays are not about receiving, but giving by using one’s own good fortune and spirit of generosity to bring joy to others.
