Share a Holiday Hug This Season!

November 23, 2021

 

This holiday season, Capstone and Buncee are teaming up for Holiday Hugs and we invite your classrooms to join us! Holiday Hugs helps spread cheer to children spending their holidays in the hospital with thoughtful ecards AND fun books. The more Holiday Hugs students create, the more books we’ll donate to Children’s Minnesota, a nonprofit pediatric health system.

 

What is Holiday Hugs?

For children spending their holidays in the hospital, it can be a lonely and isolating time, especially with many family members not able to visit them because of Covid safety protocols. Holiday Hugs hopes to help brighten a child’s day by showing them that they have an entire community who cares about them. From sharing silly, seasonal jokes to kind messages of support, students can show they care by creating ecard Buncees.

For every 5 Buncees created, Capstone will donate 1 book to Children’s Minnesota!

(*Starting today through December 15, 2021, for up to 500 books.)   

 

How Does It Work?

  1.    Log into your Buncee account or sign up for a new account at buncee.com.
  2.    Create your own Holiday Hug Buncee! For inspiration, there’s some fun holiday templates and stickers to help get you started.
  3.    Add your Buncee to the official Holiday Hugs page. Make sure to add yours by Dec. 15th!
  4.    Help us spread cheer by spreading the word about Holiday Hugs! And follow us on social media to see our book donation progress!

 

Where Did the Idea for Holiday Hugs Come From?

Holiday Hugs began in 2019 with the seed of an idea from Amy Storer, a Buncee Ambassador and former instructional coach and technology integration mentor at Montgomery ISD, inspired by her time spent in the hospital with her mother who was receiving treatment for stage 4 Ovarian Cancer. Learn more about the Holiday Hugs history over on the Buncee blog.

We can’t wait to see what your classrooms come up with! With Buncee, the possibilities are endless.
