Need something to do this weekend?
Check out BigSunday.org and lend a hand on a local project of your choosing. Or participate as a customer: you can shop at a flea market, get your nails done or buy a glass of lemonade at a volunteer-operated booth. Your money goes to a good cause.
Activities are all over the Southland. I didn't find any in Pasadena, though there are lemonade stands in Glendale and La Crescenta. But the list of BigSunday's beneficiaries is long and includes groups with offices here (Ability First, for example, and Rebuilding Together Pasadena).
Sounds to me like a worthy cause, even if all the money goes to Burbank!
Below is a look at this giant tree trunk from the other side. It's near the entrance to the trails at Eaton Canyon in Altadena.
