I missed you and Crosh324, thank you for pointing it out. I get spreadsheet blind when we are getting towards the end.

Thank You to both you, WesTex and Crosh for your contributions to the program. It's folks like you that save Christmas for these families every year.

Absolutely, I try to keep it a secret until the end. Year after year we've been breaking the previous years record. However last year was a giant leap in records, in fact last year we doubled the previous years of 5k. So right now for this year we are 3/4 of last years record. So if you're good at word problems in match, you've got the answer for how much we have right now.  ~shade

But we still have 12 days to go so with a push we can get to last years  ~bb ~bb

Hit your buddies up, post to your other communities, see if you can share their story at church. We're down to the last stretch.

If you don't see your name please message me or post here so I can make sure we got your donation.
More often than not, we got your donation I just failed in the paperwork side of it.

Every little bit we can give, goes a LONG way for our Adopt A Family. $20 is 5 gallons of gas, even at horrible gas milage of 10 mpg, that's 50 miles making it half of the round trip to visit baby Remington.

REMEMBER, the twenty bux we spend each week on snacks, soda, and coffee in the convince stores can make a huge difference in our Adopt A Family's life! Twenty dollars buys a lot of food for the table. For $40 I can make a mean pot of gumbo that will feed a family for a week!!! When you don't have anything, the smallest amount of money goes a long way. It's the time of year for giving, please did deep and let's help our family out.

If you are just joining the party, when you buy raffle tickets to these great prizes you are also supporting our fund raising efforts for these two families so that they can put some presents under the tree, food in their bellies, and gas in their vehicle so they can be with their hospital bound infants.

Nathan, Bre, and baby Remington

And our second family,

Holi, Cody, and baby Cole

We are closing in on the closing date and we need a big push here at the end.

Dig deep if you can, or simply skip that morning breakfast sandwich and coffee or fast food lunch. Every little bit helps.

And it can make a huge difference in the life of two families who are really struggling.

Let's help turn their lives around.

I've nudged a couple local business owners into writing $500 checks.

It proves that most people want to help, you just have to make it easy for them to do so.

Sorry I am behind. I did fish a tournament, post front that ripped the midwest up. Dropped out temps into the 40's and 20 plus north wind. Between my back, fingers that are still tingling today, I didn't get online yesterday. I'll get all the tickets out today. It's going to take a bit as there were a lot of folks that jumped in and supported over the weekend.

A GIANT THANK YOU to everyone!!!

Time to update. Lots of additional donations and some new ones this weekend. You all are just amazing. We are so close to last year I can taste it.  ~c~ ~c~

I know I beat you all up, and I know some of you have given till you bleed. I absolutely don't want anyone to give so much that you own family will suffer. So to everyone that has given THANK YOU so very much. To those of you that have given multiple times, WOW words can't express how happy that makes me and what I think of such generous folks.

I've updated the list so please make sure your name is on it and how many times you've donated so that 1) you get credit for your support 2) we make sure you support made it through the airwaves....
