Okay, everyone! We're going to do 'Elf Forest on the Shelf' a little different this year!!
Forest decided he will only dress up in that silly ol' elf costume and pose for pictures every day if you all do something for him in return…Elf Forest wants your assistance with trying to give as many children in the Bartholomew County area the Merriest of Christmas's ever!
He is asking for donations that he can use towards purchasing toys for children on the Salvation Army's Angel Trees as well as toys for the Fireman's Cheer Fund in the Bartholomew County area. We started a GoFund me page where you can donate, or Elf Forest would be happy to have his personal chauffer (me!) meet you to collect money or gifts, too! 100% of the proceeds will go to purchasing toys for kids in need and taken to The Salvation Army and local firestations in Columbus - if we have more money than we can spend (LET'S HOPE FOR THIS!) then all the remaining money will be split and left with the Salvation Army and the Fireman's Cheer Fund.
Each night, Elf Forest will post a picture of him being his mischievous little self and we will include a chart of where we are with our goal!
Elf Forest will start his nightly pictures on Sunday, November 26th and would like to have his goal met by Thursday, December 14th. But don't worry, we'll continue the picture through Christmas Eve!
Forest wants to thank everyone in advance for your donations and encouragement and wants to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!
