Vernon family gives back for Christmas with contest

A local family is gearing up to spread holiday cheer to children around the world

A local family is gearing up to spread holiday cheer to children around the world.

The holiday is here, bringing with it love and joy for every human around the globe. In the desire for spreading the holiday spirit, The FamJam Crew family will be giving out 10 Luvabella dolls to 10 girls across the world. Any girl from any part of the world can enter for the giveaway. To enter, participants can go to and tell Santa why they want the doll for Christmas. There are currently more than 2,400 entries.

“We understand not every parents are able to afford these dolls (valued at about $200) right now and we want to give them a chance to give it their kids for Christmas,” said the FamJam Crew. “We want to spread holiday spirit by giving these dolls away but also teach our kids to give during Christmas as they are truly blessed to have everything already. These dolls are the hottest must-have Christmas wish list toys and are sold out in stores. They are soon to disappear on Amazon. Our family is blessed to have everything. We want to show our girls the spirit Christmas by giving. Our family has 10 of them Luvabella dolls, and we thought why not make 10 girls have a magical Christmas by giving the dolls to them. We hope that this will impact the girls and inspire them to believe there is still love in this world.”

The deadline to enter the contest is Wednesday, Dec. 13 at midnight.

“We would like to pick two winners from Vernon and have our family deliver it to them,” the crew said. “All entries from Vernon we ask them to put #VernonBC in their letter to Santa.”

Luvabella dolls are artificial intelligence-infused dolls that exhibit affectionate expressions and movements, respond to their accessories and can say more than 100 words and phrases. The dolls also get better — the more she is played with, the better she becomes.

The FamJam Crew is a family who showcases fun, exciting, and educational videos. They focus on family. They started their YouTube channel to spread kindness and generosity and hope to inspire many around the world. It is hosted by a family of five and including three adorable girls that are full of fun. Visit the website at for more information about the doll giveaway and submit an entry.
