It's Christmas time again and we are excited to announce our annual Toys For Kids Drive!
Official Giving Page: Toys For Kids 2018 - GoFundMe
UPDATE: GOFUNDME does not allow REWARD levels anymore so we will detail them here in this thread towards the bottom! You give and you get tickets to win prizes!
It's that time of year for giving and our members at www.reef2reef.com love to give! If you are a seasoned veteran of REEF2REEF then you know we help unfortunate children get gifts, clothing and food at Christmas time. Every Christmas for the past 10 years we have had a toy donation drive and every year the members of R2R and the reefing community step up and give to make Christmas dreams come true! Last year alone we raised over $10,000 and bought gifts for over 100 KIDS!
Being a pastor of a local church in my community gives us the platform to not only see the need around us but to be able to do something about it! We are able to make sure that all families are in need and that the kids really wouldn't have much for Christmas otherwise. We are able to buy all the gifts with no taxes because we are a non-profit at the church. That saves us hundreds of dollars every year.
We are also very excited to announce this year that we are partnering with a Home For Children in Tennessee where we will buy gifts for 61 children not including the kids we already are helping! It's pretty amazing to us that we will be able to buy gifts for these children who are in this home for various reasons and who might not otherwise receive many or any gifts at all. 74% of these kids have been abused in some form or another. So this is really going to be a difference maker!

Goal is $10,000
I would LOVE for us to reach the goal of $10,000 again this year! We can do it! There is nothing that makes you feel better than to give to someone in need.
