Help the families that build the future of this town..... The families with children!!! Let's help bring them back onto their feet and bring See More


My children and I were thinking about all those friends, families, children we know who have gone to different donation sites in need of help for the holidays, only to be turned away because they can not take anymore names, or the parent is waiting for proof of income, etc. I have spoken to parents who have started trying for help since October and still have been turned away due to the overwhelming need of support this year. After hearing so many families having this same issue and knowing it could be my family who doesn't have a home, doesn't have money to feed my children, who doesn't have anything to give my poor children during the holidays and even birthdays! So my children, ages 5 and 3, and I sat down and thought what can we do to help? We thought about making homemade items and selling them, but When calculating out the costs of products and materials we just wouldn't be able to provide much, like we would like to. So we came up with the idea to just raise money through a fundraiser site, were we will take the funds earned and buy hams and all other fixings for amazingly delicious meals. My children and I will then cook the food, divide it up into family portions based upon number of members in the families and deliver to families in need. We are also planning on taking some of the funds and buying toys to wrap in little baskets or fun buckets and give to the children of these families in need. I've came across people who have told me and the parents of these children in need that the children if young won't remember if they received a gift on holidays or on birthdays, however, especially if the children attend a preschool or higher school, children talk. They blast about what they got and ask other children about what they received. With this thought in mind, you can not tell me a child who's parents have tried everything in their power to get them just a little something to open will not be affected by not receiving anything? I beg to differ! As a non working educator, I have seen the effects, and it is devastating! So please find it in your hearts to open yourself up this year and next and so on and Pay It Forward by giving to my family's fundraiser. Help us to provide a little shining light during a very hard time in many many families in needs lives!!! ALL the money donated will go to help bring cheer to families in need through food and gifts during a very depressing time. (Depressing when you have nothing and can do nothing for your children)..Be an Angel and donate. Share this fundraiser to as many as possible! The more people who donate and the more we can collect the more families and children's lives we can bless and bring smiles and joy to during this time of despair in their lives. Please ever dollar and cent helps! Let's try to reach out and provide a nice warm meal, clean nice clothing, and cute little baskets and gifts for kids and teens, and happiness to as many families as possible!!!!! If you have any other questions please fell free to contact me. Thank you, Tiffany
