Reblog: Giving Back, Receiving, and Winning with #GivingChristmas in a Flash

The Kat’s Cafe Gift Guide for Special Needs Families Coming

And Flash Campaign for #GivingChristmas Set to Commence

We delayed the start of our impromptu Giving Christmas campaign as well as the amazing Gift Guide for Special Needs Families here at Kat’s Cafe out of respect for the tragedy of late last week.

While everything we do is and will be tempered with respect, grief and love for families dealing with this tragedy, we want to take the opportunity to spread a bit of joy and fun for a few days as we celebrate family, unique gift ideas, giveaways, and a very special chance to give back.

help another special needs family this year!

In a Flash – Kat’s Cafe and Special Needs Families NEED YOU

Because we’re starting this campaign late, we still want to reach as MANY people as possible, spread the word about some great ideas for last minute gifts (and gifts for next year!)  for your favorite special needs family AND put together Christmas for a very deserving family with our Gift of Christmas – we desperately need YOUR help to spread the word!

Beginning tomorrow morning (That’s Thursday, Dec. 20th) and continuing through this weekend until Christmas Eve morning, we’ll be posting in a flash here at the Cafe.

  • We’ll be sharing our amazing Gift Guide (In Html AND PDF format) which will be great for sharing ideas throughout next year as well!
  • We’re also going to be sharing reviews, giveaways, and updates on the Giving Christmas campaign. With so many updates coming, and so many opportunities to win gifts perfect for your special needs family (or someone close to you!) the posting will be fast and furious.
  • And we’ll also be accepting further nominations for our Giving Christmas campaign, as well as YOUR donations or toys, money and/or other products to help ANY of the nominees with Christmas this year – they understand many gifts will arrive in time for a belated celebration.

But to make all this happen, we’ll need your help!

  • If you are a blogger, feel free to repost ANY of the associated posts (just drop me a line to let me know!) – and be entered into a special *helper’s giveaway* where you can win a goody for your blog (new header or blog button? A set of social media icons? Your choice!).
