Melting Pot Thanks and Giving® campaign and a $100 Melting Pot GC Giveaway!

I absolutely LOVE The Melting Pot! We go at least once a month as a family to eat their delicious fondue. My kids have an absolute blast using their sticks and as they call it, “making their food”. That is why I am so happy to team up with Melting Pot to tell you all about the good this restaurant is doing. From party planning, meal prepping and gift giving, this crazy time of the year is really all about family and giving thanks to those who matter most.Melting Pot

Unfortunately, we all know that not everyone has the luxury of spending time together during the holidays and it’s one of the reasons why The Melting Pot has partnered up with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

From now until Dec. 24, guests are encouraged to come in and dine at the Melting Pot during our Thanks and Giving® campaign, in effort to raise funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. For every donation of $10 made through the campaign period, guests will receive a Donate and Dine card that gives guests $20 off a future purchase of $50 or more, which can be redeemed between Jan. 2 – Aug. 31, 2017.

Since 2003, The Melting Pot has raised more than $10 million for St. Jude to help in the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The Melting Pot couldn’t do it without the generous support of team members and customers who make this meaningful contribution possible for the kids of St. Jude.

This is so meaningful to me because we have a family friend who has been helped by St. Jude in the past. They are such a wonderful organization that helps so many children in the times, when they need it the most. With the holidays upon us, now is a good time to dine at The Melting Pot. While you are having a delicious dinner, you can also help such an important cause. What do you say?screen-shot-2016-12-05-at-12-30-34-pm

Help them regain a skill we all take for granted, cooking, bathing, grooming.

Merry Christmas all!

    I’m involved in animal rescue and that’s my way of “giving back”. I was supposed to drive a transport for a puppy going to her forever home on the 23rd, but not enough drivers volunteered, so we’re trying again for this Friday. I also helped rescue a tiny kitten just four days before Christmas – it’s now being taken care of by a foster with a great local rescue (and should get a forever home quickly). We had some really frigid temperatures at that time and we were able to catch one kitten – unfortunately, not the second, who died overnight when the temperature was well below zero. At least we saved one.

  36. Danielle Jones says

    I like to give back by doing small random acts of kindness all year long. Just last week I was behind someone in a check out lane at the grocery. I wasn’t paying attention to what was going on at first but then I heard the cashier say what would you like to put back. I stepped forward and so no I will pay for it. It wasn’t much but the person was very thankful. In the summer we like to donate our gardens excess to locals in our community that are going thru hard times There’s so many ways we can all give back all year long

  37. Holly says

    We do a RACK program for strangers, visit the local nursing home with carols and cards, do the angel tree, and take advantage of whatever other giving opportunities land in our path.

    My kids are in scouts and help organize and assist in getting the toys to the kids who would otherwise not have them.

  39. Karen D says

    We set up recurring donations to some of our favorite charities. It seemed like it would be more useful to give all year, instead of just during the holiday season.

  40. Lyndsey R. says

    I am giving back by giving away all my sons clothes that no longer fit him to Salvation Army. We usually sell them on local selling walls but with the weather being so cold here I thinking giving them away would be nice.

  43. Becky VanGinkel says

    We donated Christmas dinner items to our local Food Shelf, and we also bought items off of The Giving Tree at our local hospital! We live in a very small town, so we try to help out as much as we can, because there are a lot of kids who go without during the Holidays, unfortunately :( Hurts my heart, so we do as much as we can while trying to teach our children to do the same. We teach that if you can’t give money, you can give your time, or even a smile to brighten someones day.

  44. Lisa says

    We donated to doctors without borders this year. Next year we have decided to do zero gifts for adults and do donations instead.
