I am doing a gift drive this year for the Children's Home of Poughkeepsie. This is very important to me and I hope that everyone who sees this will help me contribute to this great cause... There are 3 ways to get involved: A 100/50 raffle, gift donation, or $20 discount off of your next tattoo with a gift donation of $10 or more.
100/50 RAFFLE $20 per ticket - 100% of ticket sales will go to gifts for the kids and I will donate a tattoo gift certificate to the winner worth 50% of the ticket sales. This could mean a very nice tattoo for almost free for a lucky winner and a very kind act for those who don't win.
Donations - There are currently 55 children in permanent residence and some more in emergency housing that may or may not be there through the holidays. The average age range of these kids are between 12-17 so "toys" for small children will not be helpful. Think G,PG,PG-13 DVDs; sports balls/accessories; jump ropes; art supplies; hats,gloves,scarves; makeup; earrings (boys and girls); gift cards; journal/diary; purses/wallets; board games; ETC. I have a complete wish list available for more ideas!
Tattoo Discount - Between 11-12 to 12-12 get tattooed or book an appointment and make a gift donation (worth $10 or more) and I will give you $20 off of your tattoo!
I will make zero profit from any of this, so please be assured that this is simply a great way to help children in need this holiday season. Many of these children have been displaced from their homes due to abuse, neglect, or tragedy. It would mean so much to me if you would help me to make these kid's Christmas a little brighter this year. PLEASE SHARE THIS POST and contact me right away to make your donation or buy your raffle ticket.
ALSO- To all of my out of town friends please feel free to contact me if you would like to mail in a donation!!
There are some recurring gifts across all of the kid's wish lists including: hats gloves and scarves; socks; pajama pants; bathrobes; slippers; picture frames 8x10 and 5x7; Poughkeepsie Galleria/Visa gift cards; bath and body products.
PLEASE contact me with any questions or if you would like to get some individual clothing and shoe sizes for the kids.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
