Ditch the corporate Christmas gifts this year – become a #socialmediasanta

White_led_christmas_tree

Nobody wants a desk-sized LED Christmas tree with your company logo on it. Do your clients a favour this year and ditch the corporate Christmas gifts. Instead, become a #socialmediasanta and give a homeless child a Christmas to remember. So instead of ordering 50 of those tacky trees give a present to a child on behalf of each of your clients.

That’s exactly what I’m doing this year. If you’re a Third Sector Lab client you’ll each be giving an amazing present to a kid at Shelter Scotland’s Blantyre Families Project. No nasty branded desk calendar for you, I like you to much.

It’s a dead easy concept:

– Pick an online retailer who sells toys.

– Most of the kids are aged 7-12 so pick a gift you think they’d love.

– Add to basket, use the project’s address at checkout (below) and add a wee message.

– Voila. You’ve made a kid who might not have otherwise got a present this year very happy.

Here’s the full address for your orders, if you live nearby you can drop off your present in person:

#SocialMediaSanta, Shelter Families Project, 66a Victoria St, Blantyre, G72 0BS

 

The project received 20 presents last year, can we increase that number in 2012?
