BIG ANNOUNCEMENT : Giving Christmas Away 2012

As we hit October, I questioned whether or not I should do another Giving Christmas Away event this  year…

so I waited a bit, wondering if that gnawing “Lets Do It!” feeling would go away but it didn’t. It only grew stronger and has now turned into a bubbly excitement…

the exact same feeling I had last year.


So …


Giving Christmas Away 2012 is happening!! (November 25 -Dec 9)


Our beautiful Event button has been designed by the very creative Jenn, with Stone Alley 4 WP


This year, all the toys will be donated to our local home for abused children and the smaller toys (that can fit into a shoe box) to the Operation Christmas Child program. We are still talking to people about adding another point for donation but will let you know once that has been confirmed.


During the Event, I will encourage you to dip into your pockets and donate something…anything…to the World Vision’s efforts to make the lives of a child, not as fortunate as your own, better. I will have links etc, closer to the time.



If you would like your toys/games/kid-centric Christmas gifts featured in this awesome event, please email me at mjblog09 @ gmail dot com


We already have some awesome brands signed in.

I’m believing God to shoot the donations over and above what we were able to give last year…



And for my ever-supportive readers, we will be giving away awesome Christmas toys, games and what-nots!

As with last year, I would encourage you to pass on the love, by gifting your win to a child you know, who is in need.



Why are we  doing this?


Because this is what Christmas is all about.

And honestly, there’s no better way to  celebrate Christmas. {Trust me!}


Think about this…



  1. I love this idea! Just makes me so happy to be able to give to others and also see others give as well. 🙂

  2. Love the fact you do this! We do this in our home. Already have 3 boxes to donate. I started this with my son, who is now 29, and are teaching the same to his 3 and 7 year old daughters. It is important for them to understand the importance of giving. They love doing it, and at that age, already understand the joy of giving. I am very pleased that they get so much enjoyment out of it!

  3. How fun. My kids’ school did a toy drive last year, and it was so much fun for my kids to pick out toys to give. I like that their school really focuses on giving back to the community. They also expect students to do volunteer hours in the community.

  4. it is the season all about giving to others–glad you are doing the operation child!! seems like it will be a huge success–congrats-its all about passing kindness forward–good for you 🙂

  5. Wow…we’re already talking about Christmas….How exciting! I think what you are doing is amazing and yes…this IS what Christmas is about

  6. love that you do this!

    my daughter and I already discussed that if we win, we will shar the prize pack with kids that need toys for Christmas locally, and she’ll only keep 1 toy from the pack!
