Last year I entered a giveaway and won a TrashCanKid which Santa delivered to Fysh on Weinachten. I picked out Slam ’cause he looks like a mini replica of Fysh and went and got a little skateboard that I could pop in his trashcan pack with him. Fysh was THRILLED and loves that Slam (who is now named Blue) looks like him. And he loves me reading the forgotten world story to him when we go to bed tucked up with Blue.
I’m absolutely delighted to say that after popping a request over to the lovelies at TrashCanKidz they came back saying they would happily be a part of #25daysofgifts because not only are the dolls really cute but they have a story behind them; their motto is ‘every child counts’. They’re about giving a voice to the voiceless, to the “thrown away” – to the thousands and millions of orphaned, vulnerable and street children of the world. Homeless boys and girls who, for one reason or another, the world has ‘forgotten.’
TrashCanKidz is here to start a conversation about the plight of these children and to take positive steps – so that ours can be the generation that starts making a difference. And we’re doing it in a really unique, powerful and meaningful way – through the power of play!
TrashCanKidz invites kids to adopt an adorable TrashCanKidz of their own. These dolls represent the homeless children of our world – and for every one of the dolls adopted, we donate 20% to an organisation or initiative supporting children in need. There will also be iPad games, card games and interactive books available – so that kids can get involved in the adventures of their TrashCanKidz. And for everything that we do, everything that we sell – we make a contribution to the charities and organisations we are working with.
They’ve graciously offered up a stunning prize for a winner (this one is for Jozi peeps only as you’ll need to go and collect your gift from their store in Sandton) which includes a TrashCanKid of your choice as well as a sticker set, a TrashCanKidz singalong and a TrashCanKids christmas carols collection CD!
