Christmas Charity

Here is a Christmas Charity for those of you interested!

Jessica from will be hosting this event for our team members.

Here is what Jessica had to say:

"I work for Pluckers in Texas. On Christmas Eve they close all the Pluckers & open one in Austin for the homeless and less fortunate familys. They get to order an appetizer & a meal of there choice off our menu. Plus they do a toy drive to get christmas presents for the kids. I was hoping to get enough donations to give the adults a gift as well. I am looking for anything you want to donate really, hats, scarves, slippers, blankets, etc. You can send them to my address at:"

So here is how you play the game :

The fun will last from Friday October 28-October 31st.
The rules are simple. You start at the top of the list of shops listed below and work your way down looking for a Halloween image that the shop owner has hidden in one of their listings. The hunter needs to keep track of either the listing title they found the image under or the item listing number.

Here is the image you are looking for:
