As families prepare to hit the stores for Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday, it's important to be thinking about Giving Tuesday. It's a recent tradition that the Tuesday following Thanksgiving be used to lend a hand to those in need, and this year Carter's is getting in on the action through an extension of their Sweet Dreams Program. Now in their seventh year of partnership with Pajama Program, Carter's and their customers have raised over $3.6M and donated over 756K pajama sets through Sweet Dreams, and for 2016, Carter's gives back on Giving Tuesday. For every Carter’s pajama purchased online at www.Carters.com or at one of Carter’s 650+ retail stores on November 29, Carter’s will donate one of America’s favorite jammies to children in need, in value of over $2 million.

Updated 11/19/2019: The Holiday Season presents a tremendous opportunity to teach our children the joy of giving, in helping to provide much-needed cheer for those who may need a hand. When I started THE ROCK FATHER™ Magazine seven years ago, I had no idea that it would eventually be positioned to make some real impact in the community, but over the past few years that's happened - and for that, I owe gratitude to the readers and supporters of this website that have helped to spread the word and make it grow. Since it's inception, The Rock Father™ Santa Holiday Toy Delivery Program has provided gifts for 276 children across nearly 100 families!

Step2 Brand AmbassadorFor the past two years, I've had the privilege of working with The Step2 Company, first as a "Test Driver" in 2013, and later a full-fledged Brand Ambassador in 2014. I've had some great adventures as part of the Step2 team, and it's gone well beyond just playing with toys and talking about cool products. The folks at The Step2 Company are a very kind and giving bunch, many of which are parents themselves, and after visiting their HQ in Streetsboro, Ohio this past summer, I saw first-hand the pride that they take in their toys - most of which are Made in the USA. Going above and beyond, Step2 has been there for me on other projects, like when I needed a great raffle prize for the annual Fall Fest at Addie's school this past October, they stepped-up with a fantastic Studio Art Desk. For our final project together for 2014, all of the Step2 Brand Ambassadors have been "Playing it Forward," each spreading a little cheer to the recipient of their choice, and again, I've chosen Addie's school. After consulting with her Principal (who took feedback from the faculty), it was determined that the Pre-K/Kindergarten play area was in need of a new playhouse. Rock Father Santa was back in-action, delivering a Neat & Tidy Cottage II last week - my little Elf Finley along for the ride as we made our delivery on the way to Addie's Kindergarten Christmas party...
