I shared with you a story from one of the nominees and how she cannot provide anything for her children this year. It brought tears to her eyes to receive the gift of a delicious holiday meal and it opened up the hearts of so many of you.
Introducing The First Annual Random Acts of Deliciousness: RAD Holidays.
No one should have to figure out where their next meal is coming from or lose sleep over how to afford holiday gifts for their sweet, deserving kids. You can help give a neighbor in our community a special holiday. Nominations and donations are now open for our next round of Random Acts of Deliciousness. Please, nominate, donate & share with your friends and family.
How to Nominate a Local Family for RAD Holidays
You can nominate your own family if you are having a tough time making ends meet or nominate a seacoast family you know. We will do our best to give a meal and gifts to all the local families who are nominated but if we have more nominations than we can fulfill, names will be picked at random. You can nominate a local family by clicking here , emailing me by clicking here or send me an IM on Facebook. Nominations will end at 11:59 on December 20th, 2020.
How to Donate for Local Family to have a RAD Holiday
The goal is to raise $20,000.00 for holiday meals and gifts to support local families in need. This should give us the means to take care of over 50 families (depending on size it could be a lot more) for the holidays. Donations will end at 11:59 on December 20th, 2020.
