Tis' The Season! GIVEAWAY


Ho, Ho, Ho! Tis' the Season to Be Jolly! Mekhi and I are ready for the holidays and want to spread some cheer. Here are some easy things for you to do to catch the Holiday Spirit!

Enjoy Something Sweet!

Share Something Sweet is a partnership between chocolate company Ferrero and Share Our Strength, a leading hunger-relief organization. You can learn more about this at:

www.sharesomethingsweet.com

This partnership is in its second year, and this year Ferrero has donated $150,000 to Share Our Strength and is giving others a chance to add to that donation. Right now, if you log on to Share Something Sweet and use it to "send something sweet" (that is, a customizable e-card), Ferrero will donate another $1 per e-card sent, up to $10,000. And for every person that joins the FerreroFerrero Lovers Unite," Ferrero will donate another $1 to Share Our Strength (up to $1,000):

There's also a chocolate personality quiz, product offers and event news.

Isn't that simple? By sending a card and spreading holiday cheer you can help feed the needy. A special thanks to the Family Review Network for sharing this information.


Give the Gift of Education - GIVEAWAY

In October I was fortunate to be among the Bloggers participating in the DonorsChoose Bloggers Challenge. With your help I was able to raise $280 for several public school projects in the Atlanta Metropolitan area. As a special thank you I received a $10 Bear Bills game card from Build - A-Bear Workshop which includes 10,000 in Bear Bills virtual currency and a free virtual ride for my online character at buildbearville.com. The sweetest part of this gift is the $10.00 giving card for DonorsChoose. I was able to donate money to my fundraising effort and now $290.00 is my grand total!

Giveaway!
I have a card for you! You can enjoy 10,000 Bear Bills in the virtual world and give $10.00 to the classroom project of your choice at Donors Choose.com! I am going to up the ante by sending you an additional 10,000 in Bear Bills! 20,000 Bear Bills! All you have to do is leave a comment and you are entered! What a great way to give the gift of education and have some virtual fun too!

Good Luck!

That sounds like a pretty easy way to help out others. What a great idea. And I just absolutely adore the picture of you and Mekhi in those holiday hats. Ho! Ho! Ho!

Tooj said...

These are great ideas. I always try and donate to my stepson's school. They have such a tight budget with paper and printing and pencils, that we donate to it directly. Congrats on all that you're doing, it's wonderful. :)

VCSMama said...

OMG! That is the cutest pic! I am so in awe of your consistency in highlighting opportunities to contribute to making this world a better place. I'm actually planning to give some DonorsChoose gift cards for Christmas...hopefully yours will be one of them. Keep doing what you do!

The classroom idea rocks. Thanks for spreading so much good cheer. (Are you sure you're not 21? What the heck kind of moisturizer are you using and where can I buy it?)
