With the holiday season right around the corner, many of us are thinking of gift ideas for our loved ones. This is also the time of year when we think about those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Many in our own communities are living in shelters, don’t have access to basic hygiene items, warm clothes or enough to eat.
We invite you to show your support for those in need + spread the holiday cheer. Plus, win an amazing prize!
How to enter:
- See below for a list of charities we recommend donating to + choose which organizations/causes most resonate with you. The minimum donation amount we will accept per entry is $20.
- Each additional $10 you donate will grant you an additional entry in the raffle.
- Please email a screenshot of your donation to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We encourage you to help your community this year. If you have another cause or charity close to your heart (that is not mentioned in the below list), please feel free to donate and send us confirmation to participate in the raffle.
