Wrapping up a great holiday for the kids
During the hectic blur of Christmas activity, a few lucky CafePressers got to take a break and play Santa for a day. The team spent an afternoon wrapping presents to help distribute to more than 50,000 low income children. The gifts were then given out through the Family Giving Tree’s Holiday Wish Drive. Needless to say, 50,000 gifts is a lot to wrap (think carpel tunnel syndrome) — and the Family Giving Tree needed all the help it could get!
And what a better way to get the job done than to involve companies in a friendly competition? With over 50 teams of 4-6 wrappers, the goal was to “shop” the warehouse for the gifts, then wrap and organize the packages to be delivered. CafePress took 5th place in the contest. Not bad considering the great companies we were competing against.

Wishing you all a Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year! (Is it too late for this? Naw…)
