As many of you know, I am a big fan of LeapFrog. My love of their educational products began with the LeapPad. Well before I had kids, I realized the educational value of an interactive book and fell in love.
It has always been my dream to some day work for LeapFrog. As many of you know, I have been contributing to LeapFrog’s Community for quite awhile. While not a paid venture, it was a job I took seriously because I enjoyed sharing educational value of their products from a teacher and parent perspective.
Very recently my unpaid venture became a paid venture as I joined with 3 wonderful kindergarten through third grade teachers (who also happen to be moms!) on the LeapFrog Community. Shelby Moore, Maxine Adams, and Lia Freitas and I each have a weekly column on the Community site and were recently asked to share the spirit of giving through LeapFrog’s The Gift of Giving.
What is The Gift of Giving?
So often, the true meaning of the holidays is lost in the mad rush to find and buy the perfect gift, which ends up sending the wrong message to our children. What about giving, celebrating, and spending time with family and friends?
To celebrate the spirit of giving and the true spirit of the holidays, I need your help.
LeapFrog is donating a huge collection of products for me to give to those in need and I need your assistance in determining who will get them.
To start, I need your ideas!
Will the LeapFrog toys go to a local Boys and Girls Club, a needy family identified by a local church or school, or Toys for Tots? Do you know of a family in your community with children ranging from infants to age 8 who will not have a holiday due to the economy? Is there an amazing foster family who opens their home to children in need who could benefit?
Who could benefit from this nice gift?
Open your minds and your hearts because I need you to leave your ideas in the comments for this national search. I’m casting my net wide and will select 5 recipients among your many ideas. Then I just need you to come back to this site and vote to determine our lucky recipient.
Is there a catch? No.
Is LeapFrog paying me to do this? No, not on this site. I will be writing my weekly column each week over on the LeapFrog Community to document the process but participating inThe Gift of Giving campaign was completely voluntary.
So let’s hear it. Leave a comment and tell me who should benefit from the wonderful educational toys that LeapFrog makes this holiday season.
Think big and don’t forget to leave your e-mail since I will need to contact the top contenders for additional details prior to the voting.
Thanks very much for opening your minds and hearts this holiday season to help others since it is better to give than to receive.
I knew I could count on you! Now please leave a comment!
