That's right, Andiline. There are a lot of people we've reached on Facebook, people who are supporting this cause.

Arnie, I love you, you are so passionate and such a caring, loving, and generous man. I know it upsets you when you feel others aren't stepping up, too, but please know that in the end, everything always works out. We are down to probably about 40 gifts that need purchasing and I have until Jan. 5 to get it done--I know that we will do it because people are kind and giving.

The few times over the last 10 years that I have gotten discouraged about my charitable work has been when I have made the mistake of comparing my own inner call to action with that of others. We can expect from each only what each is capable of. People are different and their gifts are different, too.

Thank you all, and I will update this thread as soon as I have a total of what is still needed.

Love and peace to you all.

Okay then! Just trying to light a fire! I don't want kids or the elderly to be unhappy! Speaking of elderly; please make sure Snappy gets a little present or something.

Thank you, everyone! The director just confirmed that these are the gifts still needed to purchase:

3 toy shopping carts
7 baby dolls
2 Jenga games
4 Soccer ball - boys
3 Art kits
2 musical keyboards

And we need about 900 usd still for the food and blankets for the elders. I know that we are gonna make it, thanks to all of you!

Hi wired! Thank you for your kindness! I think we are set with kids gifts and I'm not sure about the elders portion of the program. The director, Gayle, is on holiday right now, but will return after the New Year. I will report back with anything I find.

I saw the pics from the elderly on Michelle's blog yesterday and that made me cry. It will probably be worse when she posts the pics of the children (I think it is either today or tomorrow).

I would love to see those pictures, as I was told my donation would be going toward the baskets for the elderly. Can you send a link to it?

Thanks
