Part of the fun of the holiday season is piling into your car all bundled up, warm drinks in hand, and enjoying the beautiful Christmas lights and holiday displays. Yet, it can seem like a real hit-or-miss on finding those homes who go above and beyond with their decorations.
Here at HedgeHog Electric, we love the holiday season and wanted to celebrate it by doing something special for the community. After some brainstorming, we introduced the community to the St. George Christmas Light Spectacular Christmas Map.
What is the St. George Christmas Light Spectacular
For the last few years, HedgeHog Electric has developed a Christmas lights map—called the St. George Christmas Light Spectacular. On this map, we pinpoint the best Christmas-decked houses with lights, decorations, and sometimes even music, that will make your night magical.
Whether you prefer to print out our Christmas light Google map or follow along on your smartphone, you are in luck. We have developed our Christmas lights map so that you can choose to download and print it out or simply allow your phone to open the map up in your Google maps app and will enable it to direct you from one amazing house to another.
Beyond just making an excellent Christmas lights map, we wanted to embrace the holiday season more completely. So, every year, HedgeHog Electric chooses an exceptional charity to donate to as part of our Christmas Light Spectacular.
This year, for every Facebook like our Christmas map receives, HedgeHog Electric will be donating $1 to Root for Kids. Also, for every new Instagram follower we receive, HedgeHog Electric will also donate $1 to Root For Kids. This donation promise will go from November 29 through December 31.
Why HedgeHog Electric chose Root for Kids
It is always a tough process to decide what local St. George charity to dedicate our Christmas Light Spectacular map toward. In past years, we have chosen the Dove Center and the local Habitat for Humanity branch here in St. George. This year, we wanted to focus on a nonprofit that is dedicated to serving our most vulnerable population, and Root for Kids does just that.
Root for Kids provides an array of services for children from birth to age five as well as their families. These services include individualized home visits such as early intervention to help children develop critical speech, motor, and learning skills with the help of trained specialists. Root for Kids also provides health services for children and pregnant women enrolled in Early Head Start.
Since 1993, Root for Kids has served over 16,000 children in Washington County and the Arizona Strip. Currently, they serve 600 children every month. With the help of donors, they are able to reach more children and provide extra support and services to the families enrolled.
So, if you can, you can choose to donate directly to Root for Kids or join them on Monday, December 16 for their 4th Annual Radioathon. If you are not able to at this time, simply following HedgeHog Electric on Instagram and liking our Christmas map on Facebook will help facilitate a donation. For every new follower or like on the Christmas Map, we will donate $1 to Root for Kids!
Be sure to check out Root For Kids, from their history to the programs they offer. That way, when you go to like our Christmas map on Facebook and follow us on Instagram, you know just who is benefiting and feel good about giving back this holiday season.
Thank you Hedgehog Electric for partnering with us this year!
