Since Christmas is more about giving than receiving we decided to make it a pajama drive to benefit children in need. Leez PJ's 4 Kids is a local organization that distributes the pajamas to various organizations that assist the homeless. They also distribute to military moms. We like that too, because San Diego has a huge military presence! Choose an organization that is near and dear to your heart. It doesn't even need to be Christmas time.
We created a music video invitation on Animoto.com. Very easy! You just select your template design, choose your music, insert the text, and add any pictures that you want. Here is our invitation:
In addition to the music video, we created a flyer to share. (flyer) It would have been great if we had taken the time to pass them out to the local businesses around our office...maybe next year :)
You can create an event on Facebook, tweet, and email to all! Leez PJ's for Kids provided us with a drop off box at our office and everyone has been coming by to drop off pajamas and say hello! It's been a great way to connect. We are excited and hoping for a great turnout for the Saturday brunch and pictures with Santa!
Here is the goody bag that we created to give to the children. Each little bag has 8 whoppers & 1 cherry sour tied up with a ribbon--Reindeer Noses!!
Once again...it was pinterest to the rescue for inspiration! Here is my pinterest board that I use to clip inspiration for future pop by ideas. Maybe you will see some of these in the future adapted for a pop by. Maybe it will inspire you, too!
