Thank you ladies SO much for your interest in this. This will not only help her give her kids a great Christmas morning, but having a bit of financial strain relieved is also going to help her wait the month out (a month from now, there will be a well-paid banker's position opening that would get her back into her career!). We can really make a huge difference in this woman's life!


If it would be easier to figure out everything through text, just pm me & I'll give you my cell number!

11-10-12:
I was talking with an acquaintance today, and she told me that unless she finds a second job soon, her six kids "will be opening boxes of IOUs for Christmas." I can't stand the thought of childrengoing without, and my husband and I sponsor a family every holiday season, so I was thinking of stepping up and getting some things together for her, her husband, and their kids for Christmas. I don't know all their ages off the top of my head, but would anyone be interested in making something for them if I get their exact ages? I can reimburse people for shipping if that's an issue.

When do you want the items by? I'm leaving town for Thanksgiving so I can't do anything for a while.

Honestly, as long as I have time to get everything together for her to pick up, I don't mind if things are getting here the day before Christmas Eve! =)

We usually adopt a family too.  In fact last year I sent a one of the members from this group a box for her little ones.  She was in the same predicament.  I'll be willing to help, just let me know where to send the gift and when.  This is really what Christmas is all about.  You're awesome for doing this.
