Well it is that time again! YES it is! CHRISTMAS IS COMING!!!!!

Official Giving Page: Toys For Kids 2015- GoFundMe

UPDATE: GOFUNDME will not allow us to mention prizes or tickets so now they are called THANK YOU'S! :) Your THANK YOU'S will be your prize entry amounts.


Goal is $7500



If you are a seasoned veteran of REEF2REEF then you know we help unfortunate children every year get gifts at Christmas time. Every Christmas for the past 8 years we have had a donation drive and the members of R2R and the reefing community always show their true colors and give above and beyond the call to duty for kids in need.

Last year alone we raised over $5000 and bought gifts for over 50 KIDS! As many of you know I am a Pastor and every year we see many, many children who are in need and being that I am a Pastor and owner of R2R it gives us a special opportunity. First off we make sure that all families are in need and that the kids really wouldn't have much for Christmas otherwise. Secondly we are able to buy all the gifts with no taxes because we are a non-profit at the church. That saved us over $200 last year alone! Third we mark each gift so that the gifts are not allowed to be taken back to the stores in exchange. Sadly there are parents who would take kids gifts back to the store and use the money for other, less productive things. Hate to have to do that but this is for the kids. We also buy nice gifts!

Here is the winners threads and toy photos from past years: https://www.reef2reef.com/forums/announcements/142736-toys-kids-winners-photos.html

I would LOVE for us to reach the goal of $7500 this year! We can do it! There is nothing that makes you feel better than to give to someone in need.

Give and Win: This year we are going to be offering prizes that can be won, by random draw, to all those that are able to give. Everyone who gives $25 will be given 2 entries per $25 donated including special level bonus entries the more you can give. Go to the official page for details. The donating companies and their prizes will be listed and updated as the drive progresses. YOU WILL BE EMAILED RAFFLE TICKET NUMBERS. AT THE END OF THE DRIVE WE WILL HAVE A VIDEO DRAWING TO PICK WINNERS.

Here is a list of donors and prizes as of today. (there will be more added in the next week)

Hopefully we will have many more sponsors give us some prizes to give away! Already have a couple we're waiting on to tell us what they will donate! Hit up your favorite R2R sponsor and tell them to join us in helping the kids!

$25 in and hope I can come back and donate more before it ends. This is just amazing and I LOVE giving back. Our family rides motorcycles and every year we do the Toys-for-tots run. The look on the kids faces when we get to Children's Hospital with all the bikes pulling up is simply amazing and will make tears come to your eyes. Such a great feeling and makes you come back year after year to experience it again.

I sooooo appreciate all the kind words. That being said this could not happen without all of you and your support over the years! Glad to be on a team with you all to see the kids get to enjoy a Christmas that would otherwise not happen. We have a good start with $275 raised!

One of my favorite ways to give back to this community that I try and participate in every year. Sending some money your way David to help out those south TN / north GA kids that might not otherwise know what it is like to wake up on Christmas morning with some gifts.

Thanks David to set this up again.
I go broke on all the donations I give in December ;)
Yet I can't miss this one.
Thanks to all the sponsors who donated and the future sponsors still to join.

PS: hope this gets as many hits as the "Mods Stop" thread!
