As I’ve been blogging about recently, Kind Leaf has set up a fantastic holiday program that has helped more than twenty families enjoy great Christmas celebrations over the last two years. The good folks at Kind Leaf are hoping to make each and every Kind Tree event bigger and better than the previous one, so please nominate a family in need and/or come on into Kind Leaf and pick out a tag from the Kind Tree to purchase a children’s gift this Christmas. Your generosity will be rewarded with a matching Kind Leaf gift certificate to use during your next trip into Eastern Oregon’s premier craft cannabis boutique. It is encouraged that you spend $25 or more for each gift.
Today, Monday, December 9th, is the last day of nominations, so email email@example.com with a paragraph as to why this family should get a Santa’s bounty of gifts to brighten up the holiday. Please hurry and spread the word and help make some big smiles this Christmas!
Here’s what the good folks at Kind Leaf have to say about their amazing Kind Tree program:
In our community there are many children who are excited for the holiday season, all around them, people are cheerful, kind and gathering together. This is a time of happiness, connection, giving and making memories. There are some local children that don’t feel the same way about the holidays inside, even though on the outside they seem strong, resilient and happy even though they may not be finding much under their tree. Life happens so fast and parents sometimes need help this time of year, the cold makes the utilities rise, extra layers means buying extra clothes and all of the other expenses can leave the tree rather empty. This is where we step in.
The Kind Leaf team has has helped gather support for over 20 families two years in row by putting up the Kind Tree.
What is the Kind Tree?
The Kind Tree is uniquely decorated each year with beautiful ornaments and tags with children’s age and gender on them. Our visitors have the option to participate by selecting a tag from the tree and returning with a gift suitable for the gender and age listed on the tag. We encourage gifts of $25 or more as we kindly return the participants generosity with a Kind Tree credit to use in our store during their next visit. –
