🎁Christmas Giveaway🎁👏👏👏
I have 8 children and they are fortunate enough to enjoy presents and great food every Christmas...that got me thinking there are people here in New Zealand who don’t eat great food on Christmas Day, don’t receive presents and Santa just doesn’t come, all because they cannot afford it. I feel like it’s time for me and my little business to do my part so......
I have decided to run a competition where you write into me telling me of a family that you know who deserves a special Christmas. We will arrive on Christmas morning with presents, a Christmas grazing table and genuine Christmas cheer. If you want to donate a gift, or food items please email me Belle@platter.co.nz
This isn’t about likes or share it’s about giving.
To enter please email me at belle@platter.co.nz before 15th December. Let’s make someone’s day, it is after all the season of giving 😍🎁😍.
