I woke up this morning to find a Tweet from @SharonMcP
Hoping that Twitter moms can create the same type of impact in favor of Toys for Tots as they did against Motrin http://www.toysfortots.org
Now for anyone that was on Twitter the weekend of Nov,15 & 16 you most likely saw hundreds of Moms form a group to let the makers of Motrin know that they did not like an advertisement they felt was degrading. This drew hundreds of blog post and letters encouraging the company to change the ad. This campaign of #motrinmoms drew the attention of people worldwide.
What if we all took that same energy to help out families in need this Christmas?
Can you imagine the lives that could be changed?
No one wants their child to wake up on Christmas morning to no presents. They do not have to!
We have the power to change Christmas for hundred or even thousands of kids this year. We have the chance to bring smiles too faces a crossed the land.
While you are out shopping for your kids, nieces, and nephews why not pick up a couple of extra things and donate them to children that may not otherwise have a gift!
You can find drop off locations, for the Toys for Tots program, in your city at Toys for Tots
If you are not able to find a drop off near you they also accept credit card donations.
Let us give a smile to a family in need this holiday season!
Please leave a comment and let us know that you are spreading the joy of Christmas with a gift from the heart!
#TFC – ‘Twitter for Christmas’ or ‘Twitter for Children’ or ‘Twitter Families Care’ or 'Twitter Family Christmas' – what ever you want to call it! LOL!
To help make this a bit more World Wide I ask if the Ladies of SWBN (Secret Women’s Business Network)would like to nominate a great Charity to help families during the holidays in their countries. They have posted a wonderful article listing their picks. So, be sure to stop over at the SWBN Blog to see their list.
You can find their charity picks for;
Allison is in Australia,
Barb is in Canada,
Lisa has her charity for the UK.
The power of joy is moving across the globe. I hope you will be apart of it.
Just an after thought, if you are shopping online with someone you know then you can buy something extra and not only help out a child but also your favorite IMer.
