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

    Official Giving Page: Toys For Kids 2017- 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 $10,000

    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 9 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 $11,000 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 also spend the time marking 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 some really nice gifts!

    Will you help us reach our goal this year? We can do it! There is nothing that makes you feel better than to give to someone in need.

    This is my favorite thread every year. This is the best. A chance to give to someone that you don't know, but you know needs it. ( hope that makes sense)
    Took me a while to find this after seeing a banner that disappeared before I had a chance to click on it.
    This needs to be a sticky.
