As you begin taking advantage of all of the Holiday Sales, I want to encourage you to Shop the Holiday Sales for a Good Cause. What does this mean? Simply be on the lookout for discounted toys and clothing that can be donated to a family (or families) in need next Christmas (or anytime throughout the year).
As some of you may know this past Christmas, Teach Me 2 Save offered a Helping Families for Christmas Giveaway. Although it started off with a $50 Gift Card for one family, through the generosity of 2 additional sponsors, we were able to offer:
- (3) Families a $100 Gift Card
- (2) Families a $50 Gift Card
- (2) South Florida Families gifts for their family
We received 71 Submissions and only being able to help 7 families was very difficult because we wanted to help them all. This being said, it is one of our goals to be able to help more families next Christmas (2012). We truly feel that it can be done if we Teach Me 2 Save and its readers) all work together to make it happen.
So I ask, and encourage, you to Shop Holiday Sales (and any sales throughout the year) for a Good Cause.
*If you decide to buy items and don’t have a place to store them and you want to make a donation for Next Year’s Helping Families for Christmas Giveaway, please contact me and we can coordinate a way for use to get them from you.
