Toys for kids sponsors 2020.jpg


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

Official Giving Page: Toys For Kids 2020 - 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 12 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!

Goal is $20,000

I would LOVE for us to reach the goal of $20,000 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.

Whether it was $10, $10,000, or $10,000, we are truly grateful for your generous donations - thank you!!! We are almost to the end of the R2R Toys for Kids drive, but there is still time to grab a few raffle tickets and make a difference for these kids!

I personally cannot contribute more than I have but I know there are so many members... If 196 of you contribute $10 we will exceed that match by $5.00. How cool would that be???

Let's make sure that we take advantage of all of the matching funds before @revhtree ends the drive. If you want to get in on the raffle this is a good to make your donation!

Alright @Peace River , what's the current total and do you believe we can set a record for donation amount this year, of all years?

By the looks of the go fund me the $20,000 goal has been met. As for new record I believe that last years total was about $30,000

10k had already been raised before GoFundMe reset the total.

I'm well aware of that, if you look at the new drive it is at $10,025 so plus the $10,000 already that's $20,025. That's why I said it looks like the goal has been met. And why it hasn't surpassed last years $30,000 total

Oh, GoFundMe migrated platforms. This amount is not reflecting $10K+ that was donated prior to the migration.
