      That is INCREDIBLE!!!!

  • Kathleen

    Hoping we'll be able to pop in for a little bit, though we likely won't be able to afford to join in the raffles/auctions & other fun, but I'd love to see what everyone's hard work wrought!
    I'm so impressed and proud with this group! ESPECIALLY Marianne, who has worked her butt off making this work!

    December 17, 2013

  • Judy H.

    Marianne, I was getting the fuzzy pillow and a diary but it seems someone else is getting the fuzzy pillow. So I will still get the locking diary.
    Is there anything else left to get?

      both girls asked for fuzzy pillows and unless I missed it, I think we still needed one for Catherine.

      Ok, I will go ahead. Thanks

    Marianne, thanks for stopping by and picking up the $100 Zehrs gift card. Geraldine, who has also attended a few meet ups gave me half as she wanted to contribute as well.

    Have a great party everyone!

    I had a thought last night, but I've spent all I can afford to, so thought I'd mention it here if anyone else wanted to do it.

    December 14, 2013

    • Kathleen

      Anyone who has gone through tough times knows that "fun" things are the first cut. What about a gift card for a night at the movies, bowling, or for ice cream at Dairy Queen, or something similar, so Mom & the kids can have a guilt free fun time out together?

      Great idea Kathleen, from the raffles proceeds I will get a night at the movies for the family....thank you

    Marianne, I'd just like to take this moment to thank you in advance for all the work you are doing for this event. At this time of year we are all busy, busy and I know that this takes alot of time and effort.
    Special thanks and blessings to you.

      Thank you Carolyn. I believe all kids deserve a Christmas. Having been a single parent for many years, I know things get tight. I was lucky I've always worked fulltime and had family and friends.

    Ok: in addition to the sketch pads & pencils for The girls & chocolates noted for mom before, I bought today:

      I didn't get deodorant for the boy, I'm not familiar with what age boys start wearing it, or using "manly" body wash. I had a bottle of Irish spring & a basic, clean smelling deodorant in my hands but couldn't decide.

    Apparently, I have too much to say since I had to cut my post into two.

    We will also be accepting non-perishable food items for the food basket.

    I will also be doing a 50/50 draw.

    Any baked goods, I have purchased a couple of big christmas containers and I will pack them up into two containers for the family and Sandy Weston.

    Hope this helps. See you Wednesday!!!

    OK, so far 2 other people have purchased the same thing I did. I'm not trying to make this difficult but the day I got the email about the family, I decided what I would buy and sent an email to Marianne as requested so she would know and to avoid duplicates as I assumed everyone would be checking with her first. I bought and wrapped the items that day. I got a makeup kit for Victoria, a $25 Tims card for Catherine and a $25 grocery card for the food hamper.

      So, I'm sorry, now I see I'm the idiot and didn't read the original email correctly, oh well, the stuff is bought and wrapped and I will bring it with me.

    I have a small basket for the parent, did we find out any thing about the mom or dad ? likes and dislikes...

    December 13, 2013

    • Kathleen

      No dad, single mom. No details on ideas for her. Marlene mentioned that's not unusual.

    I have the Tim Horton's gift card for the 12 yr old. Not sure I can stay for the fundraiser but I will definitely stop in to drop off the gift.

      I already got the gift card and told Marianne I had purchased it as requested.

      I would vote that you give the second card to the mom. I bet she'd love a treat.

    Hi Marianne. I haven't attended a meet-up in awhile but would like to help out with your Christmas shopping. If you haven't received a grocery gift certificate from anyone yet, I would like to pick one up. Please let me know.

    My sister has donated two Rainbow Loom Kits for the girls.

    This is a single mom and 3 kids. They don't usually give us particulars on the parent. So Kathleen a body wash/lotion basket would be awesome. Any gift suitable for a woman would be amazing.

    Anyone who wants to contact me directly can call me at home after 630 at[masked] 4228. I'm going to keep a running list of who has volunteered.

    I am also doing a container of baked goods, if anyone would like to donate.

    Please also remember to bring a non perishable food item to be put into their "hamper"

    Thank you for supporting this

    December 5, 2013

    • Kathleen

      Ok. I already have the box of chocolates, I will pick up some body wash & lotion.

      1 · December 6, 2013

    • Kathleen

      I got each girl a sketch pad & a package of assorted charcoals/pencils.

  • Lina

    Hi there, I'll buy a transformer toy and a puzzle for the 10 year old boy.

    1 · December 4, 2013

    • Lina

      So I bought a transformer toy, some socks, and a puzzle for the boy and a craft kit to make your own decorative hair bands for one of the girls. See you Monday.

      December 5, 2013

  • Kathleen

    I would like to do the sketch books & pencils for both girls. I would also like to do a present for Mom if that is acceptable? I was thinking a body wash/lotion basket & a box of chocolates.
