Hey guys! With the holiday months coming around, a lot of us here in my area tend to find *someone* or some organization to help out, whether it's sponsoring a family and getting gifts or donating money, etc. I am curious what you guys are up to this year, or if you have a special tradition you follow and you may be passing down to your kids?
I will for sure always do the sponsor a family thing, buying a few presents is always fun and I can afford it so why not! I want to pass that along to my children.
This year I started something new, and am putting some actual dollars out there based on how many donations I can get. I thought I would share with you guys since, hey, I am looking for the most donations to get the most BANG for our bucks, right?? This is about donating meals to hungry children, which is something that pulls at my heart strings, and I don't even have kids yet!!
If you are friends with me on facebook, you probably got the invite (and if you want to be facebook friends, please friend me!! www.facebook.com/janelleskalla - I love keeping in contact on facebook, I am on there all day :P ) but if not, here are the details:
"Did you Know?
Today in America there are more than 15 million poor and undernourished children who face immediate and life-long risk to health, growth, and school achievement.
During the holiday season, a lot of us like to focus our efforts on helping others and this year, I would encourage you to help some children in need by providing a small donation that will be MATCHED by my company, therefore providing 60 meals to children in need.
I will be donating also! In addition to what I would normally donate during this time, I also pledge to donate an extra $24 for every 5 people who make a donation. Please help!
I would love for my FB friends & family to help in this endeavor. To help, visit my website www.90daywinner.visalusgiving.com & donate $24.

I wanted to share with everyone because my personal goal is to donate over $100 dollars worth of meals, it's my first year doing this so I would love to go even higher!! If you can help GREAT, if not no worries. But please do share with us if you have any traditions during this time, I am always interested in what others do with their kids, etc. I am starting a new family now and I want to set a good example!!
Sorry about the HUGE topic =/
