In October of 2020, two girls and an army of world changers launched Operation: Christmas is Not Cancelled with a mission to save Christmas for 10,000 kids by donating 10,000 quality toys to Toys for Tots, to support our troops through The USO, and to give 18 participants amazing weekly Christmas prizes, and one grand prize winner the ultimate Christmas!
With your support, we exceeded our expectations. Here's our impact report:
A NOTE FROM JEN LILLEY:
I know it’s been an incredibly tough year for us all, and I cannot tell you how much hope, faith, and love this campaign filled my heart with.
Everyone who shopped on ChristmasIsNotCancelled.com this season is a hero in my book! When we were shy of our goal of 10,000 toys, so many of you reached out and asked if you could donate more.
Then Green Toys, Inc stepped up to the plate and donated the remaining 434 toys to get us to the finish line! and a couple of days later, we received a donation of 380 toys from Sunny Days Entertainment
Our sponsors have been incredibly supportive! Thank you to FRNDLY TV for helping us get the word out, thank you Fab Fit Fun for your donations, thank you to Home and Family for having me on twice! Thank you to Balsam Hill for donating so many prizes, I’m truly in love with your products and I just can’t thank all of you enough for supporting this mission!! There have been so many heartfelt moments, and this has really been such a joy to host! I truly believe together, we are creating an army of world changers! Our grand prize winner receives a beautiful Balsam Hill Christmas tree, plus Balsam Hills ornaments, a tree topper and skirt, and a Balsam Hill wreath, $1500 cash to buy gifts or pay bills, a box of Green Toys for her kids, dinner for her entire family, a FabFitFun winter box, stockings, a gingerbread house making kit, a Frndly TV subscription, popcorn, hot chocolate and marshmallows and the mugs to put it in, and a Christmas blanket to snuggle up and enjoy some Christmas movies! And the winner is... Congrats Mari Grafstrom from Fayetteville, NC!
