We here at Name Bubbles hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! This time of year reminds us to reflect on what we’re thankful for and also reminds us to give to those less fortunate. Many of you may have already seen us, or even other companies, participate in #GivingTuesday, which occurred this past Tuesday, December 2nd. If you’re not familiar, let me explain! #GivingTuesday is a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.
Well, that’s exactly what we did!
Thanks to all of you who joined us on Facebook to help us Share Joy with a Toy, a social effort that we tried for the very first time as part of #GivingTuesday. You see, with every Like, Share & Comment we received on our post, we donated a dollar towards a toy for Toys for Tots. Our goal was to raise $1,500 and with the help of all of you we were able to reach that goal! Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts for your support.
We thought it might be fun to show you just how all of your Likes, Shares & Comments translated into toys. Check out our photos below, I had some help from some special holiday helpers, from our #GivingTuesday shopping spree, where we visited a local Toys R Us to purchase $1,500 worth of toys for Toys for Tots.
