FAQs

What is Christmas is Not Cancelled? Christmas is Not Cancelled is an action-oriented marketing company founded by two girls on a mission to save the world by raising awareness and funding incredible non-profit organizations.  Our goal is to spread Christmas cheer all year long and create a sense of community. We do this by giving our participants the chance to win amazing prizes while giving back to those in need.

What is ‘Camp Christmas in July’?  an interactive virtual camp where we can come together as a community once a week to play games, have fun, and create lasting friendships as we support our common goal of helping kids in need.

Who can participate? Anyone can participate in our virtual Camp Nights program, however ourCamp Christmas in July” Sweepstakes is only open to legal residents of the United States of America and Canada (excluding the province of Quebec) who are at least eighteen (18) years of age, or have reached the age of majority in their respective state (or province) of residence at the time of entry.  See Official Rules for details.

What are we fundraising for? We are sending 2021 children in foster care, or those at risk of entering the foster care system, back to school with all the supplies needed for a successful school year. 

How does the fundraising work?  Starting June 25th, you will see backpack bundles on our home page. After every bundle purchase, we will fill the order by sending the corresponding backpack or supplies to Comfort Cases, where we’re hosting an Instagram live from our backpack packing party on July 29th! In addition to buying supplies for our backpack mission, 10% of everything on our site will be donated to our charity partners

Where will the backpacks go?  Together with our amazing charity partners, we will disperse the backpacks all over the United States to Child Welfare Services and churches who specifically serve children in foster care or those at risk of entering who have expressed a need for these backpacks (and the need is HUGE so we’re making this an annual commitment!) We are also sending backpacks to children in the cities of our sponsors, in Jen’s hometown of Roanoke, Virginia, and to children in Los Angeles.

Is my purchase tax deductible? No. But it will help us fulfill our mission to give 2021 children in foster care backpacks full of school supplies.

Do I have to sign up for Camp to win?  Not at all!  Our main goal is to fundraise with the backpack bundles that launch June 26th!  Our “Camp Christmas in July” virtual camp is a way for us to all connect and have fun.  One thing Jen learned as a foster parent is community is everything.  When you’re trying to change the world, knowing like minded people who share your heart for good is priceless.  We’re all in this together, and we want to help us all connect in meaningful ways, so we created “Camp Christmas in July.”

What is the Camp Schedule? Here's our Camp Nights scheduled. In addition to Camp Nights, Jen will also be hosting Instagram lives that will have even more giveaways, but only our campers get the inside scoop on when Jen is doing her surprise Instagram lives so sign up for Camp to get the full experience.
