  1. What’s one thing you can do (or have done) to give back to others for the Holiday season (it could have been something you have done years ago, or something this year, or something you plan on doing)?

    A few years back, when the Wii had just come out, I bought one (with my own hard-earned money) for my brother, who has been there for me through thick and thin! My brother is a year younger than me and is the absolute BEST! xoxo


  2. What’s one thing you can do (or have done) to give back to others for the Holiday season (it could have been something you have done years ago, or something this year, or something you plan on doing)?

    A few years ago i had helped out at a soup kitchen and donated to toys for tots. Never had done anything like this but it gave me a scene of enjoyment and have done it every holiday since.


  3. What’s one thing you can do (or have done) to give back to others for the Holiday season (it could have been something you have done years ago, or something this year, or something you plan on doing)?

    Every year before christmas, i grab all the toys and clothes and stuff in my room and put them in a big bin bag, i also ask my mum to do the same with her stuff and my little twin sisters stuff, and my sister and dad do it too. When they gather everything they dont need and is still in a good condition i take it up to the christmas charity and there they wrap them up and give them to people who dont have money to buy christmas presents for they're kids, for themselfs etcetc. I love it, plus it gives us space for when our christmas prezzies come. I also bake a cake and bring it to the cake stand, all the money goes to kids in need.

    thanks for holding this giveaway x

  4. What’s one thing you can do (or have done) to give back to others for the Holiday season (it could have been something you have done years ago, or something this year, or something you plan on doing)?

    I think Christmas is a time for charity and I plan to donate toys this year to kids in my town. Also every year, the young people from my temple get together and get toys for kids in the area. First time I would be home to go with them and distribute toys to all the kids,so I am excited for that! Santa delivers the toys on a truck lol =)

  5. Every year around this time I start volunteering at my local children's museum. I spend time reading stories, giving tours and making holiday related crafts that the children can bring home to their parents! It is rewarding to spend time with children and be able to have them give something back to their parents.

    Thank you Eve for another wonderful giveaway, you are seriously too kind!!
    Here is the link to my giveaway post on LUUUX:

  6. Every Christmas my family and I clean out our closets and fill 3-4 boxes full of clothes and food and send it to the very poor and needed children and families in the Dominican Republic!! =)I love seeing their faces when they get all these NEW things. It reminds me how fortunate I am.

  7. This is such an awesome giveaway and super cool of you to be offering this up!
    Friend & Follower on Luuux and friend/follower on Blogspot . Here is a link to my repost on Luuux: http://www.luuux.com/community/eves-awesome-urban-decay-naked-2-giveaway OR http://t.luuux.com/SHYtw?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.luuux.com%2Fcommunity%2Feves-awesome-urban-decay-naked-2-giveaway%3Ftid%3D%7Btransaction_id%7D%26aff_id%3D%7Baffiliate_id%7D

    One thing I have done and do around the holiday seasons (both Thanksgiving and Christmas) is volunteer at a local food bank and help in packaging up food and handing out food to those who are in need around the holidays. Many people cannot afford to have a Thanksgiving or Christmas meal, so I volunteer at a local church who has a food bank associated with it and I package up Thanksgiving and/or Christmas meals and then pass them out to the folks who come in to pick them up. It’s a great way to help give back to a community. I also help out this local food bank by volunteering on Tuesdays (when needed) to go to the food center a few towns over to pick up cases of food to then deliver to the church to help keep the food stocked and available to pass out to those in need.

  8. I know its not much but me, my sisters, and girlfriends would bake cupcakes and pass it out to the neighbors or sometimes we either pass out while there is a food drive near my house.
    But this year me and a couple of my friends are helping this store that gives out free toys and food and so we are planning to go there and help and pass our cupcakes out.

    and i post your giveaway on my tumblr :)

    and I just want to say thank you for giving this giveaway out, since some can't afford it. thankyou and good luck to all of us :)

  9. Thanks for this great giveaway!

    You already know I'm your friend and follower on Luuux. I've followed you on Blogspot, but I don't know how to request you as a friend lol

    My answer: Your question specifically asks for ONE thing, which makes it really hard to choose just one because I can think of a whole list of what I can and want to do. But maybe the ONE thing I'd like to do more than anything else is give back to the people who've helped support me throughout my life in all aspects of my life. Some of my friends have given me the world, and never ONCE asked for anything back. I wish I could surprise them with a really nice holiday gift they'd enjoy not just for the holidays, but for a long time because that's what they deserve <3

    I've already posted on my Luuux page. The link: http://www.luuux.com/community/eves-fantabulous-giveaway

    Thanks again, girl!

  10. here is the link to my post which I did as a post and another in the sidebar!

    I've been a friend and follower of you for a while now and i want to thank you for this awesome giveaway, and also for being such a wonderful friend on Luuux and on Facebook!

    the one thing that my family & I have done for others is donating jackets to the unfortunate ones in our community. We donated them as we no longer need them and to help those who can't afford jackets keep warm this cold winter. We often make donations throughout the year as well.

  11. awww you're so sweet !!! I wish everyone who entered the best of luck ! (btw I'm not entering since I already have one lol )

  12. Oh goodness, you are tooo kind! May all your wishes come true and may God bless your beautiful soul =)

    For the holidays, I would LOVE to donate some money to churches/other believers out there who are in need of help. Whether it is for food, gifts, to fix the church up a little bit, or to just make them happy, I would love traveling around the world and giving back to God by doing his work and helping other believers out there.

  13. What’s one thing you can do (or have done) to give back to others for the Holiday season (it could have been something you have done years ago, or something this year, or something you plan on doing)?

    I have donated money and also donated toys for children in need so they can have something to open too on Christmas day.

    Thanks for hosting this giveaway:)

    What’s one thing you can do (or have done) to give back to others for the Holiday season (it could have been something you have done years ago, or something this year, or something you plan on doing)?
    Well, besides the gift I buy for my friends and family, for 2 years now, around Christmas my boyfriend and I buy a present for a poor child. This week we did the same thing... There is a NGO that deals with poor children from minorities communities - most of the kids are gypsy or they came from really poor families that live in a very poor part of my country ( in the countryside). The kids that live in the city get more help but for ones that live in the countryside there's a program called Every kid in school! and every year the people who works in this program collects letters for Santa from these kids. Then you ask for a letter, buy a present for the kid with sweets, school supplies, clothing items, essential hygiene products and you send the present to this NGO. Around Christmas they give all the presents to the kids. This year I convinced another 4 friends to buy presents for these kids and I had the mission to collect the presents from my friends and carry them to the NGO. I feel so good knowing that instead of spending money on makeup products or junk food I got some things that will make a kid happy for Christmas. Because these kids haven't received presents from Santa before... and they barely have clothes to dress with and food to eat. And that's really really sad! Enough now cause I got really emotional ...well this NGO is called OvidiuRom and it's led by the mother of American actor Ethan Hawke and a Romanian woman. You can google it to find out more if you want to.

  15. One that thing that I do at Christmas is I bake cupcakes and take them to the local hospital and give them out to the children that have to spend Christmas at the hospital. I love doing this as its a treat for them and they are so happy when they are eating them.
    I have linked you post here

    Thank you for this giveaway I hope I win it has not come out in the UK yet that I know of anyway.

  16. I've reposted your giveaway on my blog here:

    I follow your blog under the name Sweeteaa and follow and friend you on Luuux as ☆ Yuri ☆

    One thing that my family has been doing for a couple years now is we pack some of our leftover Christmas food and give it to our employees and their neighbors. Some of our employees do not have money to have a nice Christmas meal and since we always have more than what we need, we always share. My family has once been in a place where we couldn't have huge Christmas or holiday meals so we know how sad it can feel. A comforting holiday meal can definitely brighten up someone's holiday...especially if it's on Christmas day. My family will be doing the same thing this year, so I always cook more than what we need.:) Thanks for hosting this giveaway!

  17. One thing that I do during the holiday season to give back to others is to help by donating things to various organizations. Around the holiday season, there are alot of organizations that come to my school and ask for donations or money. This year, a local shelter asked for used/new pillows & blankets. I don't have bundles of money or pillows & blankets around my house, so I went to three thrift stores, spent $20 and got 9 pillows & 2 blankets! I also donated a bunch of shampoo that I got at the dollar store for the shelter. I'd rather buy from the dollar store and thrift stores and have enough for more people, rather than going to Target and getting half the amount! It feels really good to help people who are in tough situations that do not have a stable home to stay in :(

    Thanks for the giveaway Eve! It's really sweet of you to do a giveaway!http://www.luuux.com/community/eves-urban-decay-giveaway

  18. Thank you so much for hosting this giveaway, I'm a follower and friend your LUUUX account as well as your blogspot.

    One thing that I've done to give back to the community during the holidays is donate toys. My school actually runs toy drives for unfortunate kids during the holidays. I donate brand new and un-opened toys every year. It makes me feel a lot better about myself, and I've done for at least 2 years now, and hoping to do it for many more :)

    Here is my post: http://www.luuux.com/community/eves-naked-2-palette-giveaway

  19. I collected toys and canned goods to donate to needy families. I actually got to visit some families to personally hand the toys to their children.

  20. Thanks for holding this giveaway Eve!! Believe it or not, you're the first person I've followed using Google Connect so I'm not even sure how it works lol =P but yay! You're special =)

    I usually give back by volunteering at a gala that the hospital downtown holds every year =) They usually hold a live auction, silent auction, dinner and have guest speakers where all the money goes to the specific division for the hospital. It's a lot of fun actually lol ^^

    Anyways, here's my repost on luuux: http://www.luuux.com/community/eves-naked-2-palette-giveaway-3

  21. When my Grandpa Rocky was alive we used to collect stuffed animals all throughout the year and at Christmas time we would go to our local hospital and hand them out to the children as a little something extra to put a smile their faces this time of year. Everyone at the hospital (nurses, doctors, staff, etc.) knew my Grandpa well. He passed away in the same hospital. So now that he's gone we'll be continuing his tradition and handing out stuffed animals. We may even be able to convince my Dad to dress up as Santa! :)

    Thank you for the amazing giveaway! This palette is at the top of my wishlist, I just sadly can't afford it right now :(

    Thank you again! :)

  22. Thank you for the amazing giveaway!

    What’s one thing you can do (or have done) to give back to others for the Holiday season? Every year we gather some boxes with food and clothes etc, and we take to our church and we are planning to do more often during the year not only on the hollidays..

    It's the most joyous season for me. Cause I love giving back. I normally research on a family who can't really afford and during the holidays I buy toys, clothes etc and donate it to them.

    Happy Holidays!!!

    I love christmas. especially how everyone is jolly. this year, i have already donated most of my clothes that i barely wore and shoes to my school where they give it to people in need of clothes. i donated at least two big bags!! i felt super proud of myself! there's always that good feeling when you help someone :)

    Thanks for this amazing giveaway. i'm sure alot of people are dying for this palette. once i saw that you're giving this away, and one of the rules was to be a friend here, i made an account right away! but dont really know how to use it. im already a friend on luuux btw. thanks a bunch! happy holidays && hope you have a great one with your family!

  25. What’s one thing you can do (or have done) to give back to others for the Holiday season?
    the one thing i have done to give back is what i do every year for the past 5 years! every year me and my church group spend countless hours in making blankets, scarves and hats for the homeless shelter in our community. we try to do it just in time for Christmas:) most families at the homeless shelters don't have anything to keep themselves warm and it gets even worse for them as Christmas(winter)gets close. it really hard work but in the end its really worth it to see hoe something so small can really make a difference!
    thank you for this wonderful opportunity for this giveaway and i have my fingers crossed:)
    adn i followed you and i have my parent permission:)

  26. Well I think the best thing I can personally do to repay my family right now is to do my best in school etc. (Because it's been a tough time for me at the moment & I've been struggling to keep up with my studies) Be there for them when they need me & help them out even when they don't ask for it.
    For other (such as charity etc)I think I could start doing more fundraising. I've done some in the past with my family but mainly only because they were involved! But now I matured & understand a lot more about different causes and would like to help, so I'm making that one of my new year resolutions!

  27. A few years ago I helped in at the local drop in center to serve Christmas Eve dinner to the homeless. As well I helped wrap christmas presents for families in need.

  29. Hello beautiful,

    May here. I really appreciate you doing this lovely giveaway. Idk I still had time. Well, I don't celebrate holidays but I do love to take time out of my schedule to give back to the community. I sign up to help cook, serve, sort clothes, and pass out can goods. I can also help by donating some of my clothes that I've hauled like crazy.
    I'm a huge sucker for giving back esp to my fellow Chicagoans. I wanna join the PAWS or the other local food depository or even the shelters.

    Thanks again for this giveaway. Good luck to all who enters.

  30. In the past I've volunteered at community .Thanksgiving meals and the OPeration Christmas Child shoeboxes. This year, I'm investing in my family. It's been a rough year for a lot of us...


    Luuux name: MJ Moore

  31. So nice of you!

    I usually donate clothes and food. When I was a chid, I also gave away some toys and stationary material. I think it's important to keep in mind that people need food, clothes and love all year, not only during Christmas time.

    My blog post (it's in portuguese): http://rougepur.blogspot.com/2011/12/naked-2-palette-giveaway.html

  32. I believe the holidays shouldnt be the only time that we should give back to the community. Give what you can get what you need.

    The way I have been doing it is giving back to my family back in Vietnam. My dad has 13 siblings and all of them have at least 4 kids and my mom has 8 siblings and all of them have a least 2 kids...talk about asians and their big families!

    I do my best by sending money home, with such a big family i know it can be difficult to provide every day essentials, such as medicine, school supplies, food, clothes, etc. when they dont make enough.

    How I help with the community around here is that I donate clothes, household items, cleaning products, etc...to Canadian Diabetes Association just because it hits so close to home for me.

    Happy Holidays!

  33. What’s one thing you can do (or have done) to give back to others for the Holiday season (it could have been something you have done years ago, or something this year, or something you plan on doing)?
    On thanksgiving, my family and I went to volunteer by helping an organization prepare for a big thanksgiving lunch for over 1000 people. I helped with making and packing sandwiches that the people would take with them after eating lunch that day. For the christmas time, I hope to either donate my time or money to local hospital or charity.

    What’s one thing you can do (or have done) to give back to others for the Holiday season (it could have been something you have done years ago, or something this year, or something you plan on doing)?

    My answer: I used to volunteer at local hospitals nearby me as often as I can during my spare time but I've been so busy lately with school that I just have been putting that off to the side. This season, I really want to be actively volunteering again and I think that I will do so regularly from now on. I'm just really blessed to have great friends, family and good health and I feel sad for individuals who might not have that. I can't help everyone, but every act of kindness helps! :)
