Cape Town, (PressExposure) December 30, 2008 -- We live in exceedingly tough financial times, where the Dollar and our financial wellbeing have sunk to all time lows. Yet there are others who live in even more dire situations which we would never wish to be in ourselves. Sears have developed an exciting project aptly named the 'Grant a Wish' gift card. With this card, you can give a gift to a loved one, yourself or preferably the charity of your choice. Once you have purchased your gifts, the delight you will feel from bringing happiness to a disadvantaged child's life will ensure that your Christmas spirit stays true throughout the year.
Christmas is a time for giving and receiving and a time of well-wishes and cheer. One man, Joseph Jaffe, has joined in the crusade of charitable organizations by purchasing a $500 'Grant a Wish' gift card from the retail giant, Sears. You may spend your Gift card on any item from Sears, preferably for a charity. Joseph chose to spend his gift card on himself, his family and a local charity, named Al's Angels. Al's Angels provides much needed support to families whose lives have been torn apart by AIDS, violence or other terminal diseases.
Joseph spent his gift card on a few DVD's, some presents for his wife and two boys, plus a wide variety of toys and gifts for the deserving children at Al's Angels. Lego's, snow boots, tools and dolls were but a few of the wonderful gifts that will be found under these families' Christmas tree this year. According to Jewish tradition, the highest form of gift giving is to give charity anonymously, without even knowing where the charity has gone to. This is a far cry from that decree, but it is no less a worthy and soul-fulfilling deed to perform.
Jaffe Juice has another unbelievable surprise in store for its army of bloggers, Tweeters and avid message posters. Whiles Sears was the original sponsor of the gift card, Izea have stepped up to the plate and created this amazing readers contest. Izea have donated three packages which can be won, simply by asking for the chosen package in any number of ways. Simply leave a message on the Jaffa Juice blog, send him a message on Twitter, create an audio message or post a comment to win one of three exciting packages.
Package number one is for the practical gadget aficionado. A portable DVD player, iPod Nano, mobile printer, digital photo frame and more can be won for those who value their gadgetry. Package number two guarantees a good time, as it includes a portable karaoke system, a Wii Balance board [the fastest selling console accessory of the year so far] and a drool-worthy 16GB iPod touch. Finally, the third package will make your Wii fantasies come true. You will receive the Wii Fun, which comes with some of the best games for this fantastic family console. Each one of these packages is worth something in the region of 500 dollars.
