It’s my absolute favorite time of year. ‘Tis the season of giving and I do everything I can to give back to one lucky subscriber or reader during the holidays. It’s my way of showing my appreciation for all of the support over the year with my channel and my blog. The first year I did a Christmas giveaway, I did one massive giveaway with loads of prizes for one lucky winner. Last year, I decided to spread the love and do 12 days of Christmas Giveaways where 12 lucky winners won loads of prizes! This year… I have loads of prizes, but I decided to do things a little differently.
This time, I plan on having three lucky winners win fabulous prizes – each prize bigger than the last! I also plan on having each giveaway somewhat of a surprise until I announce the winner, just because I thought it would be a little fun! Don’t you worry, though…. I tend to go BIG when it comes to my giveaways and believe me when I say the prizes will not disappoint! Before I get into the giveaway though, I wanted to mention something that I would hope you all take into consideration!
My grandmother passed a few years ago and when she was alive, she would always collect toys for the children that are less fortunate in Honduras (the country where she was from). After her passing, the women in my family continued her legacy and still collect toys to send to Honduras during the holidays. For those of you who don’t know, though, the country of Honduras has been going through a very difficult time right now with their political crisis. There are parts of the country that have been on lock down with curfews and businesses closed. People aren’t leaving their homes in fear of getting shot, beaten, robbed or worse. As if we thought our elections were messed up, Honduras is currently going through one of the worst elections in recent history. The holidays are supposed to be a time of joy, especially for the children.
My family would like to do everything we can to ensure that the children find a little bit of happiness during this destructive time in their country. We are currently raising money to purchase more gifts to send to Honduras. In the video I posted on my Youtube channel (which you can see below), I am asking for a donation of $1.00. I seem to have a pretty steady subscriber base and if everyone or even a small amount of you find it in the kindness of your heart to donate a $1.00 or whatever you can, together we would truly make a difference this year. I have opened up a GoFundMe account for this donation. HOWEVER, I realized after having opened the account that their minimum donation is $5.00. For that reason, if you would like to only donate $1.00, I ask that you do so via PayPal. You can send $1.00 through PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you feel that $5.00 is an okay donation to make, we greatly appreciate it and you can make that donation through the GoFundMe page by clicking here. If you DO NOT feel comfortable donating monetarily, but wish to donate with a Gift Card, you can send an email to email@example.com and I will email you a mailing address to send the gift card. Any donation helps, whatever you can do! Just note that a donation is NOT REQUIRED to enter the YouTube giveaway and you are in no obligation to do so. It is just an ask as I wanted to use this platform to try to do good for the kids in Honduras during this time, as it’s something I believe my Grandmother would have wanted, too.
