North Pole Day & Holiday Shopping!

slider-fundraiser-tiny-tots.jpgIf you’re looking forward to getting a little holiday shopping started, this weekend would be a great time to do it! The Dancing Weasel toy store in Eugene is generously holding a fundraiser for our playground this weekend, from Dec. 11 to 13. If you visit the store, buy a great gift, and mention you’re from Tiny Tots, they’ll contribute a percentage of the sale back to our playground — which means every toy you buy brings us closer to new toys at the playground, too!

Speaking of the playground, we’ll be having a North Pole Day end-of-term celebration this week on Dec. 15 from 4 to 6 p.m. Free snacks, games, a fun take-home craft, and even photos with Santa will be available for all members. Drop in for a few minutes or stay for the whole festive time — all of our families are welcome to share in a little winter cheer!

We’ll also have a raffle during the event, but you can buy tickets in advance through our Square marketplace site for a chance to win:

  • A $25 Cornucopia Gift Card
  • A $15 Sweet Life Gift Card
  • A $10 Euphoria Chocolate Gift Card
  • A Posh Gift Basket
  • A 1-Year Zoobooks Subscription
  • or 20 Redbox Movie Rentals

Tickets for this raffle are $1 each or $5 for 6 tickets. Buy in advance or at the event with cash or credit card.

We’re also raffling off No Winter Duty passes ($5 a ticket) to two lucky winners and a One Free Duty pass, as well. To enter the One Free Duty Pass raffle, bring up to 5 cleaning supplies (paper towels, Kleenex, non-toxic cleaning solutions, baby wipes packages, etc.) to the party and earn one ticket per item.

Questions? Let us know! We’re looking forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday night!


Would you like a fall photo session?

We have an opportunity to team up with a local photographer who specializes in children’s photos, Loving Life Photography, for a fall fundraiser. The photographer has generously offered to contribute $10 from every scheduled mini-session during a special Tiny Tots members’ photo day. Each mini-session will give families 5 fully digitally edited, copyright-released photos (that’s 5 poses) for $35.

In addition, Rachel, the photographer, will also offer a raffle for members who sign up where one lucky family will get their photo session for free!

If you’re interested in this, we have a short survey available to help us figure out the right dates, times, and locations. Please take a moment to fill it out, and we’ll have more details soon!

In the meantime, you can check out more of Loving Life Photography at her Facebook page.
