Christmas Spirit

The Bloggess had a very touching post a couple of days ago. She gave away $30 gift cards to the first 20 people who wrote in that they needed it to have any semblance of Christmas this year:  Playground Hunt has so far made just over $60 dollars from people shopping through our Amazon.com Affiliate link. We would like to pass this on to two of our friends.

From the Bloggess:

If you’re struggling for money right now and don’t know how you’ll give your kids presents then leave me a comment.  You don’t have to use your real name or leave a url or prove anything.  Just leave me a comment and your email address (always hidden and never used) and I’ll email a $30 Amazon gift card to the first twenty people who leave a comment explaining why it would make a difference in their lives right now.

Thank you to everyone who made a difference to me.

PS.  My guess is that with so many people out of work right now these will go fast so if you’re in a place where you’re lucky enough to have money to share then please donate to Toys for Tots.  Or if you’d like to help by doing your own gift card giveaway (even giving one can make a huge difference and you can do it all online) on your blog then just leave a comment with your url below and we can keep this going until we help as many people as we can.

Just like The Bloggess said, leave a comment explaining why you could use the Amazon gift card. I’ll email you the code. I’m assuming these two will go fast, so if you can help, post a comment and we’ll hook you up with someone who needs it.

Merry Christmas

    This is a wonderful idea. We are lucky to not need the gift card, but just wanted to let you know that this entire enterprise gives my shrivelled old heart a warm glow.
