I'll get my package out to them ASAP...it's coming from Canada so it may take a little longer...hopefully that's okay.

Thanks so much for organizing this, Nicole. You're amazing.

No really its you all that made it happen. I am sure that is more than ok mama. I will however let the main organizer (dreamsindigital) know so she can let the family know to expect it.

Nicole, I just sent the $10 you wanted. Can you tell us what our total was? And what all is being shipped? I'm just curious. Or should we keep that quiet since they are on MDC?

Anywhoo, I think it's a great idea for you to coordinate help for another family when you're a FIN yourself. It's a way of giving back instantly.

I've been there too Nicole, so don't be embarrassed! My DH actually was homeless once for a short period of time. Now things are sooooo different for both of us just like I know they will be for you. You've got a huge heart... it always comes back around.

Just an FYI I am still collecting PP.

Since we were able to send so much to our family....I decided that it would be awesome to spread the cheer so we have contributed to 2 other families Christmas via gift cards. HOW AWESOME IS THAT????

There is still time to contribute so if you would like to please do so! I will get it to the next family in line!

My package is ready for the DD: two puzzles, a jewelry box, a stamp and ink pad, some stickers, and three new books. I also stuck in a pretty necklace for mama (and labelled it that way so she'd know).
