Every December, my boys and I select toys, underwear, coats, food, etc. for
several children in our area. Children that Santa won't visit. It's always such
a special tradition for us, so when MomSelect and Cepia contacted me about
their amazing RAZ program, I was ecstatic. What is RAZ, you ask???
RAZ is "Random Acts of Zhu" and is the largest community service program
by Cepia, the makers of Zhu Zhu Pets. Each year they send out boxes of furry
little pets and accessories to willing bloggers. This year, I was one of those
bloggers...and look at what I received...
(Yep. My Fed Ex man was shocked, too.)
We'd always planned to donate to Cobb Christmas, which is one of our
favorite local charities, helping around 4,000 children each year. (I
always loved that they set up the donations like a store so needy parents
can "shop" for their kids.) However, once I learned that the donation
was so large, I decided to split it up and help MUST Ministries annual
Toy Shop, too. It's really similar to Cobb Christmas and helps so many
families in our area schools.
So, we loaded up "big blue" twice for drop-offs...
And, it was a ton of fun seeing the faces of the volunteers when we
said we had "a large donation"!
Thank you so much to the aforementioned companies for including me in the donation. I received
nothing for this post. The opinions expressed are my own and were not influenced in any manner.
