It all started with Giving Tuesday 2017. I was in the process of making these Christmas coloring pages and I had intended to add them to my product https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Narrated-Video-How-to-Make-Christmas-Trees-With-Powerpoint-Video-1-3506323. As I sat in the family room creating these on my computer, an advertisement for St. Jude's Hospital appeared on the TV. It just melted my heart to see children with life-threatening health conditions and the strength they exuded to deal with such hardships. Furthermore, I was thrilled to see that St. Jude's doesn't charge a penny to the parents/caregivers of these children for the services provided.
I always wanted to "give back" somehow and it always seems that I miss opportunities in finding the perfect venue to do so. For instance, in searching how I could assist the Texas flood victims through my business, I finally found the means to do so on TpT, but it was a month later and the venue was closed. Or, if I contact a larger organization such as Red Cross or the Salvation Army and I want the funds directed to a specific cause, they don't do that.....instead, the money goes into a general fund.
So, being that the day was Giving Tuesday when I saw the advertisement for St. Judes, I thought, well why not do this myself?
I am offering these beautiful free art deco Christmas Tree coloring pages on Teachers Pay Teachers. You can get them at my TpT store https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Margo-Gentile or
