Toys for kids 2021.jpg


It's Christmas time again and we are excited to announce our annual Toys For Kids Drive!

Official Giving Page: Toys For Kids 2021 - 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 13 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 $30,000 for toys, clothes, food & necessities for kids and their families all over the world!

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 once again partnering with the GVM Orphanage, Smokey Mountain Children's Home, Grace Alive Church and The Awakening Church to help us disperse gifts, food, clothing and necessities to kids and families all over the world.

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. All the proceed go directly to the Toy Drive!

We will be closing the drive on December 10th!

Goal is $25,000

I would LOVE for us to reach the goal of $25,000 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 from some of our generous sponsors that can be won, by random draw to all those that are able to give. The following is a list of ticket entries you will receive for donating certain dollar amounts.

I'm in! My family was on the receiving end more than once growing up. I'm glad to be able to pass on some of that joy, and to alleviate a bit of stress for parents and caregivers in need of extra help. Happy Christmas, y'all. <3
