There’s nothing better than giving. We know that first hand. Last week, we hosted a blogger party at 77 Kids. There’s nothing better than giving to our peers, especially with great gift ideas, so thanks to 77 kids we were able to give shopping sprees to over 50 bloggers and their kids.
We brought our kids to our holiday event which featured DJ on the rise DJ Fulano, his mentor (and DJ to the stars) DJ Cassidy.
And Cassidy is not only a mentor to Fulano but a great gift to all kids who are looking for inspiration. Cassidy even let the kids know some of the ins and outs of becoming a DJ if they so wished to in the future, he even highlighted points in which it can be easier to “make it” with fewer resources, such as options to put equipment on dj finance, so new and upcoming DJ’s can afford some top-of-line equipment to improve their music production quality, plus loads more! He was the perfect gift for the day for our kids who couldn’t wait to talk about music and ask him questions about what he does.
In our spirit of giving back, we are also donating some of our items to other kids.
And last week we suggested custom gifts idea that gives back and many of you asked for more. Some of us would like to give the gifts personally, but not everybody can afford the time. You can turn to courier services to send the parcel on time, as some services like startrack couriers can get them delivered interstate and internationally. So with that in mind and in the spirit of giving – we’ve put a few more together for you….
So if you still have shopping to do, or if you want to get a head start for next year, take a look.
A great webstore selling gifts for kids, cares about giving back. They want every child to feel as fortunate as theirs do. So, this December, they are letting our customers be gift heroes! They have 3 awesome hero-themed gifts and will set aside 5% of retail sales of these products to purchase toys for children in need.
