25 Days of Christmas 2012
By popular demand, ‘Tim’s 25 Days of Christmas‘ returns for the 2012 Holiday Season. We guess you could even say it’s the 3rd Annual. Built upon the idea that doing something for someone else helps us all have a brighter holiday season, we’re back to continue the tradition.
Tim’s 25 days of Christmas is a daily blog during the 25 days leading up to and including, Christmas. Each day, I share a little Christmas music video to get you in the mood for the holidays and I then I also feature a charity of the day. For each day of the campaign I donate $5.00 to a different charity and share the links so that you can do the same. Now, I know that $5.00 isn’t a lot of money, but then again, it’s typically the time of year when budgets are tight. The intent was that if people in my network start joining me and matching my meager $5.00 donation, then all of a sudden, that $5 bucks turns into $10, $20, $50, $200 and beyond, and now we are starting to make a difference. This page will chronicle each of the Charities that we donate to on a daily basis. That way, if you miss a day you can come back here and catch up. After Christmas Day, the list will be complete and you will be able to look back and reflect on all of the positivity and Christmas spirit you have helped to foster.
We’re still aiming to make this a Community Experience, so if you have any suggestions for charities in need of support or perhaps would like to suggest your favourite Christmas music video, please let me know by leaving a comment below any of the daily blog posts or on our Facebook Page or on Twitter. It may already be on the list, or it may find a spot on the 2013 list. Either way, I would love to have you contribute. Remember to come back daily over the course of December. Please help us make the greatest impact by Liking, Sharing, Commenting on, and Retweeting these posts every single day. Doing so, increases the chance that another generous soul will discover the campaign and participate.
Thank you so much for taking the time out of your day to be a part of ’Tim’s 25 Days of Christmas’ 2012.
