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!

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.
