When my FAVORITE off-priced retailers Marshall’s and TJ Maxx invited me to join in the fun caroling to raise money for Toys for Tots I thought…..gee, that might be fun. But, I took a minute and thought seriously about the amount of money that they’d have to put out for ear plugs to all of the people who come to their site. I realized that if I went ahead and started belting out my rendition of Jingle Bells or Deck the Halls….that the only cause I’d be helping – the nations ear, nose & throat doctors (yes, there’d be some new BMW’s in front of their offices this holiday season).
So, in the spirit of the holidays…I’m withdrawing from the competition. Maybe they’d prefer I do an interpretive dance of “Deck Yourself Out” done in a cross between Martha Graham and Isadora Duncan (with flowing dresses & lots of scarves). I think maybe a donation from me to Toys for Tots would be a bit more….appropriate (in keeping with the holiday spirit).
For those of you who would like to join in the fun of Carol-Oke. You can Join the Carolers and SING IT LIKE YOU MEAN IT.
You could even win yourself a $5,000 Shopping Spree or one of 15 $100 gift cards.
So – start practicing your scales and then upload yourself singing on TJ Maxx & Marshall’s You Tube channel and help raise money for a worthy cause.
