Gift Donation Christmas Tree

In my office we have "adopted" three families to help this Christmas who are in our area. We were clothing needs, gift wishes and some big ticket items as well I.e. furniture. We also have a lot of people in our office and needed a good way to organize.

I really can't take the credit for this as my boss came up with the idea for the Christmas tree, but hey I actually made it right ;)

Here is the master piece (I"m actually pretty happy with how this turned out, I'm usually my own biggest critic).

The different "ornament" shapes correspond to a different need. For instance, the shirt ornament is for a clothing need. The present box is for an actual gift someone requested. The round shapes are for gift cards that kids requested. And the cupcakes are if someone wants to donate cash for large food baskets. 

Take a look at an ornament



On the left side they are to wright their name, department, and the gift and then they return them to me. I have then been keeping track of everyone so that we don't miss a need anywhere. 

The person then keeps the right side of the tag to remind them to pray for the kids and so they don't forget to buy the gift :) 

Here's what the tree looks like as people start to take gifts. 

'Tis the season to give!
