$3280 – 168 Cards / 250 Goal
After working DoorDash in lower income areas of Canton and Akron, I wanted to do something for the kids in these areas. The mission is to help provide a Christmas surprise for as many children in these areas as possible, some who may not get anything else for Christmas.
250. Last years goal was 1,000 gift cards for kids who live in poverty. I realized how unobtainable that was, Last year we reached 211 gift cards. This year the goal is a little more modest. I would love to at least hit the amount from last year which was 211 cards, and possibly hit 250.
Each Kid Receives:
Christmas card with a random gift card inside.
What I’m Contributing:
Due to my increased financial responsibility since last year, I’m not able to give as much as last year. However, i still want to be a leader by example and be a major contributor to my own cause. I will be donating $1 for every player at all my events this year.
435 players at NEO Showcases, NWO Showcase & All Ohio Camp = $435
+ all service fees on charges and transfers
+ cost of all the Christmas cards and miscellaneous
Kids received $20 gift cards from one of these restaurants randomly:
Dave & Buster’s, Steak & Shake, Golden Corral, Jersey Mike’s, Red Robin, Olive Garden, Chipotle, Panera, Cane’s, Buffalo Wild Wings,
Five Guys, Outback, Firehouse Subs, Dairy Queen, Coldstone Creamery, Sonic, Subway, Burger King.
