Communitree: A Worldwide Christmas Tree Decorating Event

In celebration of the Christmas Season, we have teamed up with ScentSicles, the prime maker of scented ornaments, to make holiday history by coordinating the World’s First Digital Tree Decorating Event. Benefiting Toys for Tots, an organization that aims to help kids in need, this online event presents New York’s Rockfeller Center Tree in digitized form, the perfect tree for this first-ever worldwide Christmas tree decorating party. With a three-day $20,000 donation goal, this event aims to create a greater sense of global community and togetherness in conjunction with the wonderful season of giving.

Starting November 8, everyone from around the world is invited to participate in this three-day event from the comfort of their own homes by signing up at http://www.TheCommunitree.com/ in preparation for the event’s launch on November 19. From there, participants have until the 21st to remotely operate a robotic arm to position and hang ornaments on the branches of a rotating Christmas tree as people watch from a live video screen. For every decoration attempt, Balsam Hill and ScentSicles will donate $5 to Toys for Tots. Successfully hung ornaments can be shared on Facebook where each “Like” yields an additional 25-cent donation.

In addition, those who successfully hang a ScentSicles scented ornament will receive a free 6-pack of ScentSicles on top of the $5 Toys for Tots donation they generated by participating. A Balsam Hill tree will also be given to a shelter or charitable organization each day of this three-day event.

Spread the joy this season and join Balsam Hill and ScentSicles as they make a difference in the lives of those in need. Sign up now and get in line to decorate the World’s First Digital Tree.
