As we approach Thanksgiving and the Christmas holiday season it is easy to forget that not everyone has it as good as you do. In today’s economy those that are unable to afford even a Christmas tree, much less something under it, is higher than ever. This also effects the amount of donations received by charities set up to help the underprivileged. Luckily, for a relatively few families, Angels Giving Tree is there to help.
Established in 2011 and run by a couple adult industry veterans, Angels Giving Tree has the goal of helping as many families with children at the holidays as possible. Last year they raised $10,000 and helped give a better Christmas to about 200 children. Angels Giving Tree is a registered Not For Profit organization in Florida and they have applied for their 501(c)3 with the IRS.
The concept was started several years ago when Pattyecake and Todd “SexToyKing” Oster held their annual toy drive. In 2011 Todd died and Forest of Silver Cloud Design decided to take the ball and run with it. Local charitable organizations provide suggestions of families with children that need help and Angels Giving Tree uses the donations they receive to find and deliver the gifts to those that will truly appreciate it.
