More than 2,000 Austin families will consider “canceling Christmas” this year because they can’t afford the toys, gifts or even food to celebrate.
You or your company can adopt a family and save Christmas.
It’s simple. Just visit Foundation Communities to download a family sponsorship form, fill it in to let them know what size family you’d like to sponsor, etc.
Send in your family sponsorship form by Thursday, December 9.
This is your chance to be a hero, folks. Your donation goes straight to the families with the most need, and you can spend as much or as little as you want. Foundation Communities offers lots of gift ideas for each person in the family, so this is a easy, fun way to share the joy of the season.
And if you’ve ever seen a child on Christmas morning opening a present and seeing exactly the toy they asked Santa for… Seriously, it will make your whole year.
What I love about Foundation Communities is that they have an amazing way of helping not just families with the most need but Austin overall because they’re repurposing empty hotels and apartments and condos into affordable housing that helps get families off the streets. They also give them a leg-up offering classes, training, community daycare and other services that give families a solid base for success.
So I don’t feel bad about pulling out my marketing copywriting hat to sell this opportunity to you.
Send in the sponsorship form by December 9.
Get your co-workers, employees, and family involved.
