As with everything 2020, this year the BBRC Giving Tree will look a little different. We would like to support Treehouse in their effort to fulfill the Holiday wish lists of children in foster families throughout Washington. This year has been challenging in so many ways and youth in foster care can be some of the hardest hit. A meaningful holiday toy/gift or warm clothes can make all the difference in a child's confidence and determination to persevere; we can make difference!
Treehouse has created this Amazon online wish list link to toys/gifts and clothing to help make the season brighter for youth in foster care. Here are a few hints for best use of the wish list:
- You must be signed into an Amazon account.
- Empty your Amazon cart before shopping for Treehouse youth – this should make the default shipping location Treehouse. CONFIRM THAT "TREEHOUSE GIFT REGISTRY" is selected under "Choose a shipping address". If there are items that are not from Treehouse’s Charity List in your shopping cart, you will have to select different shipping locations for these items from the shipping option page during checkout.
- The last day that Treehouse is accepting holiday requests from youth this year is December 12th. Please have all items purchased before that day if you want them to be distributed this holiday season. If gifts are purchased after Dec 12th, they will be stored and distributed for the next Holiday season. Every donation will be received by a young person eventually.
- If you would like a tax receipt for the items you purchase from our Charity List, you can fill out an in-kind receipt, which will generate an email receipt for tax purposes
Please email Kim at ClubAdmin@bbrc.net and let her know what you ordered so that we can keep track of purchases made by BBRC. Thanks, as always, for your continued generosity!
