Recently, I was chosen by Cepia, the makers of Zhu Zhu Pets to choose a charity that helps children. After much thought, I chose the charity Cottleville Fire Community Outreach. They are a local fire department that provides outreach to children and families in my area. After visiting them recently for a Day with Santa event, we noticed that they also have a toy drive. I knew that they would be the right choice to give the Zhu Zhu Pets to. The firefighters were all very nice and are so enthusiastic about helping the local children to have a joyful Christmas.
We had 13 boxes of Zhu Zhu Pets in my front hallway for over a week as we waited for the day when we could deliver them to the fire department. Finally the day arrived and we packed up all the Zhu Zhu Pets and headed to the fire department. Johnny and Joley were so excited to give the Zhu Zhu Pets to kids that don’t have any or weren’t getting toys this Christmas.
The firemen were so thankful for the generous donation from Cepia that was delivered by me. They said that it will help them make this Christmas better for many kids in my area. They were kind enough to stand for some pictures with us before handing them out to kids!
We said goodbye to the Zhu Zhu Pets and the firemen and left the building feeling good. You may not have 104 Zhu Zhu Pets to give, but it is a wonderful feeling to give to those that are needy or without this holiday season. I encourage each of you to make a small donation to a local charity, a toy drive, or other charity organization. I know it gave my family a great sense of peace and I would love that for each of you.
A huge thank you to Cepia for choosing me to deliver the Zhu Zhu Pets and providing them for my donation.
