FIN #1 Australia
Many thanks to all the MDC Holiday Helpers that donated to the gift card fund, and to Hylands for matching the donations.
We received a gift card by email, totally unexpectedly, and it made my day. It will go a long way towards some new work boots for DP. (Especially in post Christmas sales!)
Thank you all.
Special thanks to N in Australia for the packages that you sent. I was so surprised! I appreciate all the little bits and pieces you sent, they were lovely. And the gift card helped a lot with the Christmas grocery shopping, which meant we were able to stock the pantry, AND have some very yummy food on Christmas day. Most of all though, I appreciated your card, and your kind words. It was a little overwhelming to read a such special message from someone that I have never met, but it made me feel as though someone out there understood exactly what we've been dealing with. It brought tears to my eyes.
Your second package arrived a couple of days later, and took me by complete surprise. Believe me though, they will both be put to good use.
Finally, to all the mods and organisers, your work is appreciated more than you can know. I'm sure that arranging the HH schedule takes much of your time and effort, at a very busy time of year, but it is a wonderful gift that you give.
These days, it can be hard to believe in the good inside people, but all the MDC Holiday Helpers have renewed my faith.
I wish a very happy new year to you all.
