We are now a week into September which means roughly three months before our annual Yes, Virginia wish fulfilling will be in full swing, and the last of the gifts will be hitting the mail system to make it in time for Christmas.
I know it's hard to contemplate twinkle lights, stockings, and Santa when it is still reasonably warm outside and there is so much national upheaval front and center 24/7, but I wanted to start directing your attention back to our Yes, Virginia link. Back to the spirit of this blogmunity. Back to what never fails to make us all refocus our attention, refuel our spirits, and remind us that we can make a difference.
Each year your generosity helps keep the heat on, provides food for empty stomachs, boots for chilly feet, and everything from beds to clothing to toys. You literally change lives and remind those in need that the good people DO outnumber the bad.
This year's donating is made easier by the creation of a new DONATE button for Paypal. You may use it to donate from your own Paypal account or from your choice of debit or credit card.
I will be away for three weeks at the end of October/beginning of November, so would like to get a headstart on Elfing this year. Please begin to give if you can, and if you know of some children whose Christmas looks in jeopardy, or you need help keeping the spirit alive in your own home, please email me. The sooner we get started, the more children/families we can include. (I know many people hate to even think about Christmas before Thanksgiving, but I hope you will think about donating.)
