holiday season upon us, the Bluechip team decide to sponsor a child
through SafeHouse Outreach, a local organization in Atlanta that
provides a hand up instead of a hand out.
The "Christmas Time in the
City" project specifically provides gifts for children who would not
otherwise have a Christmas. This is the third year in a row Bluechip has
participated in this program. Both Bluechip as a company and employees
of our office personally donated money to purchase gifts for our
sponsored child, an 8 year old girl.
We proudly dropped the gifts off
today, just in time for SafeHouse's Christmas Party on Sunday. For more

well worth it.
The shot captured a bird’s eye view of tailgating, pregame
activities, “The most exciting 25 seconds in college football”
tradition, game action, a stunning sunset and Clemson’s fans
crashing the field after the game.
