Three Ways You Should Be Celebrating Christmas In July

At RMD Advertising, we believe that giving back to the community is as important as working harder and smarter for our food clients. That’s why we’ve given so much to Wagons Ho Ho Ho over the past seven years. This July, we’d like to inspire the rest of central Ohio step out and help as well.

This December, Wagons Ho Ho Ho slated to build 800 wagons … filling them with food and delivering to families in need in more than 20 counties throughout Ohio. A precious gift of a wagon to child who otherwise wouldn’t know Christmas.

What does this have to do with you? And what can YOU do to celebrate Christmas in July?

1. Make a Commitment! Save the Date. This December 6, YOU could be a part of the Wagon Building Party. Come by yourself, with your family or friends and even work buddies … but to be there!

2. Give Until it Hurts. Ok, don’t go that far … but do consider giving! Even the smallest of financial donations can be multiplied 11 fold with our partners’ buying power! And that means more food to fill those wagons. Amp the donation idea even further! Ask your employer if they have a “matching” donation program. We’ll love you for it!
