It wasn’t until I was reading Random Acts of Zhu Blessing in A Backpack on my friend Connie’s site that I realized Zhu Zhu chose 100 bloggers to participate in Random Acts of Zhu.
“The makers of Zhu Zhu Pets and Kung Zhu, Cepia, LLC, chose 100 bloggers to donate 104 Zhu Zhu Pets to local non-profits that provide toys to needy children.”
We (the bloggers) were provided with 104 Zhu Zhu Pets. Do that math (100 x 104) 10,400 were given to charity! OH My for Charity! We were told to give them to a charity that means something to us and share our experience.
My Experience was amazing, and helped lead to over 330 toys being donated to Treehouse in Seattle. I wrote about the Seattle Tweet Drive previously. Club Sur donated the venue and food. It was a fun night where fellow tweeters tweeted for charity!
Here are the toys:
These toys are now with Treehouse. Treehouse is a charity for Orphans and Foster Families who need extra support in our community. The children will actually be allowed to go shopping and pick out what they want.
The most challenging part of giving all of the Zhu Zhu pets away was explaining to my 2 year old, who LOVES these critters, that he can’t keep any of them.
Thank you Zhu Zhu and Cepia, LLC for allowing us to partake in such a wonderful giving campaign!
