What started as a one time mission to give Christmas to families in crisis during the pandemic, has evolved into a series of impactful giving campaigns featuring family-friendly celebrities from various networks, centered around fostering a sense of community that gives back.

At Christmas Is Not Cancelled, we represent an online community of world changers, including celebrities, influencers, fans, Christmas enthusiasts, and brands, uniting to contribute to a greater good. Our goal is to spread Christmas cheer all year long and create a healthy space within the online community that promotes generosity and kindness, while offering participants the chance to win exciting prizes. Together, we work towards our shared mission of supporting children in need.

After overwhelming success and joy filled responses from participants, Jen Lilley and Ale Boggiano, founders of "Christmas is Not Cancelled" came to the conclusion that the charitable fundraising model is outdated and insufficient. Having been deeply involved in the non-profit sector—Jen as an ambassador for children's causes and Ale as a head of PR and marketing for a prominent New York-based non-profit—they realized nonprofits often face financial constraints and must allocate significant time, money, and effort to fundraising, diverting focus from their core missions. The Christmas is Not Cancelled community believes charities shouldn't have to bear the burden of fundraising alone.  So, we've stepped in to put the fun in fundraising, making it enjoyable by offering life-changing prizes and experiences, while ensuring nonprofits can focus more on their vital missions.


How it works

At Christmas Is Not Cancelled, we spread the joy of Christmas year-round by serving vulnerable children. When you purchase a gift on our website from October to December, you enter our sweepstakes with 1 entry per dollar spent.

In the summer (June and July), we provide backpacks with school supplies. Additionally, in February, we host Countdown to Valentine's Day, fundraising for care packages for teenage girls and women in foster care or experiencing homelessness. Participants in the summer and February activities also have the opportunity to enter the sweepstakes with 1 entry per dollar spent.

The holiday gifts are delivered directly to Toys for Tots, with a portion benefiting children in the Childhelp, Project Orphans, and Tulsa Girls Home programs. The backpacks and carepackages are delivered to Comfort Cases.

We host online interactive programs throughout the year, such as Countdown to Valentine's, Camp Christmas in July, and Christmas University in the fall. Participating in these events earns you entries into our sweepstakes.

Furthermore, 10% of all merchandise purchased on our site is donated to our charity partners as a cash contribution to cover their operations.

While purchases on our site benefit charities and reward you with sweepstakes entries, please note that these transactions are not tax-deductible. If you'd like to make a direct donation to our partner nonprofits, we encourage you to visit their respective websites.
