Hard-driving developer Mr. Popper is focused on his career to the detriment of his personal relationships, including those with ex-wife, whom he still loves and his daughters, who feel estranged from their workaholic dad. But when a bevy of mischievous penguins are delivered to his house - part of a legacy from the globe-trotting father he never really knew - Mr. Popper's previously orderly existence is turned upside down. As he gets acquainted with – and increasingly attached to – his winged roommates, Popper’s life quickly unravels: his swanky New York apartment is turned into a snowy winter wonderland, the deal he’s long been working on is derailed, and he almost lands in jail. Mr. Popper begins to reexamine his priorities, and reevaluate what is truly important in his life.

Here is long version:
Sir*Real Skate Shop Presents:
Deck The Halls - Restoring Christmas for Underprivileged Families

Christmas is a time of giving, and receiving. A time where we put logs on the fire, hot chocolate in our cups, and presents under the tree. A time we pile into the car and head to the malls, buying gifts for our loved ones, all while picturing the look of cheer on their faces as they open the gifts we've wrapped in sparkling paper.

...Unfortunately, not every Christmas is so bright and full of cheer. For many, there is no money for giving, and receiving. No fire to stay warm, no hot chocolate, and no tree...let alone anything to put under it even if they had one.

Christmas like these are happening all over. I grew up having many Christmas's like this. I was fortunate enough to have Grandparents who always made sure that "Santa" would visit. But in my single parent home, my mother, would draw a Christmas tree on a piece of paper, tape it to the wall, and wrap little tiny cardboard boxes, palm size...and inside each one would be a little verse or encouraging saying.

For many kids, they don't have grandparents to "Save Christmas". For many, They don't even have families who care enough to even draw a Christmas tree for them.

This Christmas, Its time that we as a community stand up, and show these kids and families that we're all in it together...and we care about each other!

Sir*Real Skate Shop is holding a fundraiser, and giving you a chance to really bring joy to children's faces this Christmas...
