Thank You!

*Update* I just wanted to let you know the family received the box on Thursday. They let me know they were very grateful for it. They weren’t expecting to receive anything since they contacted me by mistake. The gift has been placed under the tree and I’m looking forward to hearing back from after their son opens the present on Christmas. Thanks again for helping make this Christmas special for this family even though we don’t know them!

Today I’m most grateful for everyone that pitched in a donation to help sponsor the Barnett family this year! Although the goal wasn’t reached, we were able to get some items they requested for this winter.

A nice warm, water resistant, low weight winter jacket. A pair of jeans and two warm long-sleeved shirts.

It’s so touching to see how a few people coming together to give what they have are able to do more as a group. Giving has always been a big part of my life whether with volunteer services or financial contributions. I’m very humbled to be able to show my daughters the importance and impact of giving. Thanks again for being part of my first venture in hosting a family. I’ll be sure to let them know how many people came together to make this surprise happen. A special thank you to my mom! While I did the online work of raising awareness and asking for contributions, she went out and purchased the items, wrapped them, and boxed them up to ship them. Teamwork makes the dream work!
