Giving back at the Holidays!






I just found out that Twittermoms and Robeez is involved in a blog event to give back for the holidays!   Guess what Robeez   is up to?  For every pair of Robeez Soft Sole purchases, stride rite will donate that pair to K.I.D.S (Kids In Distressed Situations), through December 23rd.  I would love to get a pair of these shoes for Lucy.  She is the cutest baby and will need these shoes before you know it!

I love these Robeez soft sole Paisley T-straps in fuchia!  They will add a little prep to her step. Lucy can study her ABC's and 123's at the playground or the park in this easy-on, stay-on paisley t-strap.

As for my family we give back to our Church Family by hosting a huge Open House!  My husband is the Pastor and this is our 4th Christmas here and our 3rd year.  We moved here right before Christmas.  We had closed on our home so we got to sleep there with air beds! It was a lot of fun!  Members of our Church brought over food, frying pan and utensils, salt & pepper,etc whatever they thought that we could use for a few days until we moved in all our belongings.  Their love and generosity has continued year after year.  So our Open House is a way that we can give back to them and say THANKS for all that you do!

As part of the Open House we are also going Christmas Caroling to the local nursing homes and stopping at homes of people from our church who can't get out and join us.

As a family and as a church family we are involved in Project Weekend Warrior.  Each week we bag up food for needy school children to take home to eat over the weekend.   During their Christmas break we will be sending home $20 McDonald gift cards and extra food and water to help them get through their break.  It is so sad to think that there are kids that don't get much food on the weekends or during the Holidays.  We try and help.

Our family and church family also volunteer and donate food to the local Food Pantry.  We were able to give them money to help purchase chickens for the holidays.  A fun treat we are doing is putting together personal care items for those who visit the pantry.  They will be little holiday bags of shampoo, soap, shavers, denture cleaner, feminine hygiene products, etc.  These are items that are not available for them at the Pantry. If I happen to win the grand prize I will be donating the shoes to the Food Pantry for those with little ones.  They will be overwhelmed to receive such a high quality and very warm product for their little ones this winter.

Thanks to all who go the extra mile and do something special during this time of the year.  What do you do for the Holidays to help others?

Take a few minutes and visit Twittermoms to enter in this blogging contest! K.I.D.S brings hope and self-esteem to children in need and their families by providing new clothes, shoes, toys, furniture, books and juvenile products donated by leading manufacturers and retailers. The donations move through their network of community social service agencies in the U.S. and abroad to reach children who are ill, living in poverty, or are the victims of natural disasters.
