The Downtown Langley Business Association’s Shop Your Heart Out holiday campaign gives you a chance to win one of three $1,000 shopping sprees AND help direct thousands of dollars to local charities.

Shop Your Heart Out offers a win-win for shoppers and Langley charities!

Downtown businesses make it easier than ever to give back this Christmas

The Downtown Langley Business Association is hoping you’ll Shop Your Heart Out this holiday season, but not for the reason you might think…

While the organization’s holiday shopping contest has been a highlight for many years, it was time to change things up. How better to do that than by giving back?

“This community is so focused on charity and local support. When we were looking at what more we could do we thought, ‘Why don’t we give back even more?’” says Teri James, executive director of the Downtown Langley Business Association.

Shop Your Heart Out was born.

Not only do shoppers have a chance to win one of three $1,000 shopping sprees with participating Downtown Langley businesses, but they can also help direct thousands of dollars to local charities.

Each participating business contributed $100, and between Nov. 13 and Dec. 21, people can email info@downtownlangley.com to weigh in about which Langley charity they’d like to receive a donation.

“Simply use the subject ‘Langley Charity,’ share the name of your favourite charity and hit send,” James says. “On Jan. 4 we’ll announce the two Langley charities with the most votes, and each will receive $1,500!

In addition, the DLBA will donate $500 in each winner’s name to the Langley charity of their choice.

Check out the 2018 Shop Your Heart Out 2018 Contest and Christmas Guide for holiday shopping inspiration and to discover why giving back is important to local retailers.

“The secret to living is giving,” reflects Carrie from the Passionate Home. “Though we strive to bring value daily, the holidays are the perfect opportunity to come together with our community for our community.”

Says Sherri, from Stickys Candy Langley: “This is my home. It is a part of me and I am a part of it; giving back is how healthy communities function.”

Enter to win your shopping spree!

It couldn’t be easier to win one of three $1,000 prizes of a shopping spree to be used at Downtown Langley businesses participating in the promotion.

Between Monday, Nov. 12 and Monday, Dec. 24, simply write your name and phone number on the back of your sales receipt, and pop it in the ballot box.

Winners will be drawn on Friday, Jan. 4, 2019. Votes for your favourite charity are welcome between Nov. 13 and Dec. 21, with the winning charities also announced Jan. 4.

Come join the fun and help give back.

“Community giving has been an important part of our business to 20 years. We’re proud to support those who support us,” says Heather, from 1 Fish 2 Fish fresh seafood market.
