SPOKANE, Wash.--Seven2 is a Spokane creative company taking a unique approach to their holiday giving.    

Owners Tyler Lafferty and Nick Murto are empowering their employees to spread good feelings well beyond their walls.

Seven2 is cooking up an innovative plan to spice up the holiday for community members. They are calling the plan GiveStarter.

Employees showed up at the Brown's Addition Rosauers in 2012 and offered to buy people's groceries.

"Even just watching the video it just brings tears to your eyes it was so fun for us to do," said Murto.

Seven2 wants the public to choose the surprise for 2013.

You can vote for one of the three options that you think is the merriest way for Seven2 to surprise people with Christmas cheer.

The first option is a Karma Santa. The Santa would be a man walking down the street who appears to accidentally drop cash. Those who give back the cash not only get to keep the money but they would also be showered with gifts.

The second option is a Gas Station Santa. That Santa would appear at an area station to give drivers a little relief from the high prices by paying their tabs.

"And he'll have a bunch of toys and other things in the back of his car that he'll open up and give those out as well," said Murto.

In the third option, Seven2 would surprise struggling families with a secret winter wonderland where they can pick from a sea of gifts for their kids.

Seven2 has a special webpage to visit where you can help them choose the holiday surprise. You can click here to visit that webpage and vote.
