Lisa here with an exciting update happening in the Westshore District of Tampa!Magical Season of Giving

The Westshore Mall is hosting the  at the end of November. This is a great opportunity for those who like to get their holiday shopping out of the way early (not usually my style, but with this incentive I might change my ways!).

So here is how the Magical Season of Giving is going to work. Area non-profit organizations will be selling a Passport to Savings. This passport costs $5 and offers close to 50 opportunities for savings, and 100% of the proceeds go directly to the non-profit organizations.

The passport also includes a chance to win a prize in the drawings. The passports will be available at Guest Services in the mall. If you buy a passport the proceeds benefit All Children's Hospital Foundation, Girls Empowered Mentally For Success, Boy Scout Troop 797, Kathy's Place For Hope and many more.

Over the past 6 years area non-profit organizations have raised more than $500,000 for their respective causes. This is done through Magical Days, Nights or Seasons of giving, and the Passport to Savings program.

This years Magical Season of Giving is happening from November 29th to December 10th, and coupons include retailers like Old Navy, Ann Taylor, BCBG, Hallmark, Brookstone and many more.

So get out there and do some Tampa Bay Shopping for some great causes. What a good excuse to get the holiday shopping done before the rush!

That's all for now, but keep checking for more Tampa Florida News updates!
