Pokeman, Pillows and Other Christmas Wishes
November 13, 2013
During the Adopt-A-Family program, we get to see firsthand how much time each donor puts into carefully selecting the gifts for their family. The joy they express in showing how they were able to find the exact gifts that their children put on their wish lists is evident.
This thoughtfulness doesn’t go unnoticed. The families that receive gifts through the program feel special and cared for.
Last year, one grateful mom shared this note of thanks with us:
"To the person/people who adopted my son and I for Christmas, I feel so compelled to thank you from the bottom of my heart. I just opened the package you sent and cried. The gifts for my son were so thoughtful. The clothes are perfect and he is going to freak out when he sees the Pokemon kit you picked! He needed a pillow very much, and you have picked two beautiful fluffy ones, it’s just amazing! The gift certificates are going to make our holiday to wonderful, you just have no idea.
…I must tell you that your kind and generous gesture to adopt a family means the world to us. The gifts really are just perfect! Thank you so very much!
…I also make a promise to you (as well as to my son, as we have discussed it together) that when I am past this stage, and working again, we will pay it forward and adopt a family for Christmas too.
Happy Holidays to you and your family. Thank you, thank you, thank you again”
