The holidays are a time for joy, togetherness, and giving. No matter what you celebrate or believe in, the holidays evoke a feeling of warmth and nostalgia maybe through a family tradition, a special holiday party, or even a just a pumpkin spice latte to warm up the day.
Starting in November, everyone gears up and it’s easy to look out with your rose colored glasses and forget about the people who are maybe a little stressed about making ends meet; or maybe don’t get to be at home with their family this holiday season.
While hardships can fall on people at any time of the year, the holidays can be especially hard, which is why Lamarque Ford started its 25 Days of Christmas campaign (http://www.lamarque.com/twenty-five-days-of-christmas.htm). Starting November 23rd people can text in to be entered for a chance to win a $100 Toys “R” Us gift card. For every dollar Lamarque gives away to the lucky winners, they will also match in donations to the New Orleans Children’s Hospital.
Toys can’t bring the kids health, but they can bring a smile to their face. The holidays come whether we are healthy or sick, wealthy or poor; and gifts like these can brighten everyone’s day and bring warmth to the holiday season.
