If there is one thing that I would love to impart to my children about the holidays it is that we need to think about those that are less fortunate than us when it comes to all we have.That is why we like to give back, why we take part in the Angel Tree at our church, and impart to our kids that volunteering and charity work can be very rewarding especially when you get involved in your own community.
That's why my family and the Philly Dads Group will be attending The Winter Festival at the Kimberton Fairgrounds in Phoenixville this weekend.
This coming Saturday, December 14th from 10am to 4pm, the Philly Dads Group will have an opportunity to take part in a unique event called the Winter Festival benefitting Toys For Tots. Admission is FREE with the donation of a new/unwrapped toy to donate.

Part of the cool thing about having a blog this past year has been the opportunities to connect with different brands and review their products. It has been my plan this year to put aside some of the extra toys I have received and to give them to Toys for Tots at this event. There is nothing better than bringing joy to children during the holidays and we hope our contribution does just that.
Things to do at this event include a Star Wars character Meet and Greet provided by The Garrison Carida: 501st Legion, Star Wars In Character Podcast, and Rebel Legion Echo Base. You can even participate in Blast-A-Trooper and shoot darts at Stormtrooper! Maybe even Darth Vader will show up, if he has the guts to face your Rebel fighter, that is.
You can get a complimentary chair massage, get a balloon creation for the kids, have some brick oven pizza provided by Pizza Wagon, or do some Christmas shopping. You can visit the Event Info site to learn more.
What is even better is that the organizers of the Winter Festival have let Philly Dads Group be a sponsor of this event and have even given us a table to spread the word about our group! Please come and look for us at our table and take a flyer or business card to pass on to a great dad you know in the Philadelphia area who would like to participate in our group.
Head to our Meetup page for the event and RSVP to hang with us. Bring a new/unwrapped toy to donate and become a part of something special for the holidays with your family and ours.
