Our Toy Drive Donation! #CBias #DisneyCFK #ChampionsforKids

If you are a regular reader, you will know that I am currently working on a campaign with Disney and Champions For Kids. I wrote a post about how we give back to our local community. We donate gift cards to St. Columbanus Parish through our church, we take part in a teddy bear drive for domestic violence shelters, and donate what is needed for the homeless. Madison’s school has also started a toy drive. However, the toy drive we participate the most in is through Bill’s work. This is 9th Annual Toy Drive there. Last year, they were able to collected $879.00 in cash along with toys that people brought in. In all, they were able to purchase and donate over 600 pieces of toys, clothing, and coats! They also were able to purchased 16 small family sized dinner preparation sacks, where they put spaghetti, sauce, corn, juice, and several other non-perishable foods to a handful of families who were in need of food. Bill’s company has less than 50 people who work for it, so this is awesome. The part that I love the most is that it was 2 men who came up with this. We’ve donated every single year, and it’s such a great cause. I can’t imagine a Christmas without enough food or presents under the table which is why it is important for family to donate.

With the help of Disney and Champions for Kids, my family and I were able to create a stocking for a child. Here is what our shopping trip looked like:

As you can see, Madison and I had a good time. As I stated in my pictures above, our original goal was to put together a “girl” stocking. However, we couldn’t find enough smaller things that would fit in a stocking in the price range I wanted. However, they had plenty of “boy” toy things that would perfectly fit in a stocking. Also, we have seen Cars 2 and loved it, so Madison and I had a good time picking things out. What I didn’t expect was that when we put the stocking together, it was going to be like playing Tetris. I definitely had to have a plan to get everything in! My son was super excited at our purchases, so I know that the child who gets this will love the stocking! It was hard to not put the entire store in my cart.

I love that I get to teach my kids about being kind and helping others. Thank you Champions for Kids and Disney for this opportunity!

This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias.
