#Giveaway #TOMSforTarget Gift Giving while Giving Back with Toms and Target ($100 Gift Card)

The holidays are upon us, and as we prepare for those meals with our families, the get togethers with loved ones and the holiday shopping, we need to keep in mind what the season is all about. For my family, when we sit at the table this Thanksgiving, we not only enjoy a meal together, but we give thanks. We like to go around the table and say what we are thankful for, aside from that, we also give back by helping others. Each year when it comes to the Thanksgiving meal, we have gone to our local Ronald McDonald House, to help cook and serve Thanksgiving to the families there, who are not able to be home and have kids in the hospital. We also find other ways to give back during the season, that is not just limited to Thanksgiving either.

Aside from the meal we help out with, we take part in giving gifts to kids in need, from donations that we take each year to our local CASA to the donations we also take to our local Children's Home. This is something that we include our kids in, to teach them and show them that this time of year is not about getting, but about giving back to others. This tradition is something that we not only include our kids in, but a tradition that my own parents took part in when I was a kid.

Now over the holiday season, there are many ways to give back, from helping at a soup kitchen, donating clothes, blankets, and even toys to those less fortunate, and also finding ways to give back as you prepare your own holiday celebrations. Like when we head out to our local Target or shop online at Target.com, I can give back while I shop by picking up items for my family and home from the TOMS collection at Target.


I like knowing that as we pick up those hoodies, hats and scarves for the kids from TOMS line at Target, we are not only picking up items that we needed for the season and for gift giving, but we are also giving back. Because for every item purchased from the TOMS + Target collection, there will be money donated to those in need, which will either be $3 from Target to FeedingAmerica.org which is the monetary equivalent of one week of meals for someone in need or $5 to American Red Cross Disaster Relief redcross.org which is the equivalent of one blanket, or TOMS will give one pair of shoes to a child in need!

The donations will vary by the product you purchase, and you can see the donation that will be made on the packaging or label.  This is not only a way of giving back that you can partake in right now, but you can continue to shop this line through the holidays on to March 12, 2015!

For myself and my family, this is just one of the many ways in which we will be giving back this year, and to celebrate the giving, we will also be participating in Giving Tuesday, which is December 2nd this year. So as you prepare for those holiday meals, and head out to do the holiday shopping, be sure to keep the true spirit of the season in mind, and remember that this is the season of giving!

Well to help when it comes to the spirit of the season, the wonderful people from Target would like to give one of my amazing readers a $100 Target gift card!
