THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED AND A WINNER HAS BEEN CHOSEN WITH THE PLUG IN “AND THE WINNER IS”. THIS WINNER HAS ALSO BEEN NOTIFIED. THEY HAVE 48 HOURS TO REPLY BACK OR A NEW WINNER WILL BE CHOSEN. THANK YOU AGAIN FOR ENTERING!
Christmas is just not about receiving gifts. Its about giving. For me, that is what it is really all about. Giving to those in need.
Salvation Army is one organization who feels the exact same way. Their volunteers work tirelessly day in and day out to make sure others have a wonderful Christmas. Salvation Army teamed up with Sam’s Club and Off the Field to do just that. Help make 10 families across 10 selected cities Christmas a little brighter. These families will be receiving $1,000 worth of food and holiday gifts, including clothes, personal items, electronics and toys from Sam’s Club. The wonderful women doing the shopping for these families are NFL players wives who are apart of Off the Field, a organization that is all about empowering and helping others in need.
Here you can see Romonda Jordan, wife of Randy Jordan, Texas A&M University running backs coach and nine-year NFL running back with the Los Angeles Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars. She’s also a founding member of Off The Field and currently serves as Chairman of the Board helping to shop for these 10 deserving families.
These women took time out of their busy day, to help. To show that they truly care for those who are less fortunate. They took the time to really care about what items they were choosing for their families, to make sure they got the most bang for their buck but also made sure the families received what they need and even some things they wanted. They did not stop there. They wrapped each and every gift and each family will also receive a gift card to purchase food they need.
So as you are out shopping this holiday season and you see those volunteers with the bells and the little red buckets, remember what they are doing and who they are helping. Even if all you have is a nickle please consider giving it. It all adds up and any amount can help make one families Christmas magical.
Mandatory Entry: Tell me what you do to help those in need. Not just during the holidays, if you volunteer at a soup kitchen once a month or donate clothing and toys to a woman’s shelter, tell me! I want to know how you help others!
