In this final round of holiday etoys and activities, we’ve discovered a number of unusual activities. There also continue to be some incredible efforts around charitable giving. Instead of doing a crazy review like before .. here’s a list with links. Enjoy!
- Tattoo Santa from R/GA. Enough said.
- Remember Elf Yourself from Office Max (warning, site is down a LOT)? They’re back with a new group elf feature. And they have also created Scrooge Yourself (it’s down a lot too). And check out the riff on it … Gnome Yourself from Dunder Mifflin 🙂
- Pimp My Sleigh by Kwik-Fit Insurance – trick out the sleigh that you would ride in if you were Santa
- Snow globes are popular. Pepsi has one that supports their charitable donations to Second Harvest. And PETA also has a snow globe this year where you can give someone a shake who has been cruel to animals.
- 5 Gifts that Cost Nothing .. but could mean everything from Chris Penn at the Financial Aid Podcast. A poignant take on what would really make a difference in both your friends’ and family’s lives as well as your own.
One of my favourites (though technically not an ecard or viral video) is the 15 Below project from TAXI. Instead of giving staff and client gifts this year, TAXI has designed a coat that can be insulated with newspaper and can withstand temperatures up to -15 (the temperature that causes Cold Alerts to be put into effect). This coat will be distributed to homeless across North America on behalf of TAXI clients and staff. You can view the story of the coat and its design as well as a video of it being put to the test on their site www.15belowproject.org.
